An ecosystem approach to management of seamounts in the Southern Indian Ocean : volume 1 : overview of seamount ecosystems and biodiversity

Seamounts are topographic rises of the seabed with a limited extent across the summit. There is evidence that seamounts form hotspots of biological activity in the oceans. Why seamounts host abundant populations of fish and other pelagic and aquatic predators is still uncertain.
