 Flower Garden Banks

USA, Texas

English (Translate this text in English): Flower Garden Banks NMS is one of 14 federally designated underwater areas protected by NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. Located 70 to 115 miles off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana, these underwater communities rise from the depths of the Gulf of Mexico atop underwater mountains called salt domes.

The sanctuary actually protects three separate areas: East Flower Garden Bank, West Flower Garden Bank and Stetson Bank. These banks are separated from each other by miles of open ocean ranging from 200 to 400 feet (61-122 meters) deep, and each bank has its own set of boundaries. Source: flowergarden.noaa.gov.
