Abstract:
Measurements of biomass and productivity of seabed macrobenthic and megabenthic organisms, from studies in eastern North America from New England to the Canadian Arctic dating from 1954 to 2000, have been assembled into a comprehensive, georeferenced, database. Information sources include primary publications, technical reports and unpublished data from scientific studies, commercial fisheries surveys, and monitoring and baseline studies carried out for offshore petroleum exploration. These data are for display on the OBIS portal and associated mapping programs and for download to personal computers for ad-hoc end-user analysis. OBIS Schema concepts present in this dataset include: Date Last Modified, Institution Code, Collection Code, Catalog Number, Scientific Name, Source, Citation, Phylum, Year Collected, Country, Locality, Longitude, Latitude, Observed Weight, Notes.
