Description
The Marine Invertebrate Diversity Initiative dataset contains the marine invertebrate species that can be found in the waters of the MIDI study area. This includes the Scotian Shelf, Bay of Fundy, Bras D'or Lakes and the Gulf of Maine. more

The goal of the Marine Invertebrate Diversity Initiative (MIDI) is to provide information about marine invertebrates (animals without backbones). We hope to engage scientists, educators and students, resource users, environmental managers, naturalists, fishermen and the general public in learning, discovering and respecting the biodiversity of our oceans. This dataset contains the marine invertebrate species that can be found in the waters of the MIDI study area. This includes the Scotian Shelf, Bay of Fundy, Bras D'or Lakes and the Gulf of Maine. Use the MIDI Database link to access more information about marine invertebrate species, marine habitats, locations or references. These data are for display on the OBIS portal and associated mapping programs and for download to personal computers for ad-hoc end-user analysis.
