Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the marine invertebrate species that can be found in the
waters of the MIDI study area. This includes the Scotian Shelf, Bay of Fundy,
Bras D'or Lakes and the Gulf of Maine. Use the MIDI Database link to access
more information about marine invertebrate species, marine habitats, locations
or references.

Please be aware that this is an ONGOING project. The goal of MIDI is to provide
information about marine invertebrates (animals without backbones). We hope to
engage scientists, educators and students, resource users, environmental
managers, naturalists, fishermen and the general public in learning,
discovering and respecting the biodiversity of our oceans.
