dc.description.abstract This data report fulfils two functions. It (1) gives station data for 1022 midwater trawl collections made in the Atlantic Ocean between 1961 and 1974 by the writers and their colleagues (Table 1, Figure 1, and Appendix 1) and for 531 Atlantic neuston collections made between 1964 and 1974 (Table 2 and Appendix 2), and (2) gives the geographic coordinates for a set of boundaries that divides the Atlantic Ocean between the arctic-subarctic boundary and the subtropical convergence at 40°S into a system of faunal regions and provinces (Figure 2 and Appendix 3). The derivation of these boundaries is explained briefly. en_US
