Visualizations

Explore Gulf of Maine data through maps and animations. How have fish distributions changed through time? Are there seasonal patterns to the distribution of major fish taxa in the Gulf of Maine? How have cod populations changed through time? Are there any patterns in cod populations that may be correlated with temperature? The following products explore species distribution and abundance through temperature, depth and substrate. For an underwater tour of the Gulf of Maine through video and photos, visit our Media Gallery. To search and download biological data for your own project, visit our Data and Mapping Portal.
