Censusing Non-Fish Nekton

Carolyn LeviGregory StoneJerry R. Schubel
First Paragraph

This is a brief summary of a “Non-Fish Nekton” workshop held on 10-11 December 1997 at the New England Aquarium. The overall goals were: (1) to assess the feasibility of conducting a census of life in the sea, (2) to identify the strategies and components of such a census, (3) to assess whether a periodic census would generate scientifically worthwhile results, and (4) to determine the level of interest of the scientific community in participating in the design and conduct of a census of life in the sea.
