[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Bongo plankton tow samples from thirty cruises to the Gulf of
Maine/Georges Bank were screened for fish egg concentrations. Eggs
were identified by species and life stages (expanded for Gadidae eggs).
Sampling was performed over a fixed grid, on a monthly basis
(January-June) for years 1995-1999.

Note: The species taxon list is too large to be incorporated into the
keyword list. Only the family Gadidae is listed.
