The Northeast Continental Shelf can be divided into four major subareas: Gulf of Maine (GOM), Georges Bank (GB), Southern New England (SNE) and the Middle Atlantic Bight (MAB), which reflect different underlying oceanographic conditions and fishery management boundaries. The variations in SST, chlorophyll, and zooplankton biomass in these four subareas are described in the following sections.
