Correlation between the Azooxantellate Scleractinian coral distribution and abundance of zooplankton in the Atlantic Ocean was discussed. The analysis was based on a dataset of 943 specimens (82 species) sampled at 87 stations during cruises of Russian research vessels in the Atlantic. A hypothesis concerning correlation of coral biodiversity and population density with zooplankton abundance was tested. Relationships between these parameters were contradictory. High coral biodiversity and population density were registered for areas of low and average zooplankton abundance in surface waters.
