Lophelia is abundant in Norwegian waters, and the world's largest known Lophelia-reef, the Røst-reef, is located at Lofoten, in northern Norway. It was discovered in 2002.
Three so far unknown coral-reefs have recently been discovered in the Norwegian waters off the coast of Trøndelag, a geographical region in the central part of Norway. The discoveries were done in the ongoing Norwegian sea-mapping project MAREANO.
