Spring 2008 Update: Fall Conditions-Northeast Shelf Ecosystem by Subregion

Northeast Shelf subregion map

The Northeast Continental Shelf ecosystem 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 regional variation in SST, chlorophyll, and zooplankton biomass is evaluated by these subareas.
