Fall 2018 NEAMAP Food Webs

Our diet analysis lab was extremely productive over the winter!  We finished up the fall NEAMAP samples in record time, leaving a large vacant spot in the lab awaiting the return of the March ChesMMAP cruise and more stomachs.  Discover what we saw in the fish stomachs, learn about who was eating whom, and explore the structure of food webs in the nearshore habitat of the US mid-Atlantic coast.

New Web Map Apps

New for 2017, our catch maps in web app format!

ChesMMAP

NEAMAP

We will continue to provide cruise catch maps and water quality maps after each cruise, but now our catch data for selected species are summarized by cruise and by year.  The ChesMMAP data are pooled across all years and reported by cruise: March, May, July, September, and November as well as pooled across all cruises and reported by year, from 2002 to 2016.  The NEAMAP data are likewise reported by year, for both Spring and Fall from 2007 to 2016.  For the NEAMAP catch summaries by cruise, the apps incorporate a swipe tool to quickly compare Fall and Spring in the same map.
