[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This volume of the REVIZEE Document Series, named 'Biodiversity of the deep marine fauna off the coast in the Brazilian Economic Exclusive Zone' was based on samples collected during the REVIZEE - Central oceanographic cruise that took place in the region between Salvador (BA) and Sao Tome Cape (RJ), including the oceanic islands of Trindade and Martim Vaz. Within the scope of the REVIZEE Program, we assessed some aspects of the deep macrofauna, those that related the abundance of populations to general oceanographic features, in order to add to the understanding of the dynamics of the overall availability of live resources.
