Abundance and proportion of ichthyoplankton of the Northeast U.S. Shelf. Ichthyoplankton data from several surveys conducted during the Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment, and Prediction (MARMAP; 1977-1987) and Ecosystem Monitoring (EcoMon; 1999-2008) programs. The Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) has conducted several ichthyoplankton collection programs on the NEUS Shelf over the past forty years including the Marine Resources Monitoring, Assessment, and Prediction program (MARMAP, 1977 - 1987) and Ecosystem Monitoring (EcoMon, 1999 - present) program (Richardson et al. 2010). Both MARMAP and EcoMon were designed as multi-species plankton surveys, and sampling effort covered the entire NEUS Shelf from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, to Cape Sable, Nova Scotia (Figure 1, Sibunka and Silverman 1984, 1989; Richardson et al. 2010).
