This map shows the average abundance of some types of zooplankton — Calanus finmarchicus, euphausiids, gammarid amphipods, and mysid shrimp — during the fall season from 2003 to 2007.

Data Considerations

The Northeast Fisheries Science Center collected the zooplankton data. The Nature Conservancy obtained this dataset from NEFSC and prepared it for Northeast Ocean Data.


This is a final data product. We do not currently have plans to change or update the dataset.
