Description

This coral is one of the most common species in shallow-water habitats of the European Atlantic coast and we find it very frequently in fishing nets. It is called the pink sea fan, common fan or warty gorgonian. That’s because its skeleton has many small bumps into which the polyps retract (see our section on Coral Biology to learn more about what a polyp is). We can find Eunicella verrucosa 15 m to 400 m deep. Its colors can vary from fully white to pink or orange. This species is currently listed as vulnerable in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
