Abstract
    The following fauna distribution maps have been compiled from data collected by the Sherkin Island Marine Station Shore Survey Unit from 1978 to 1982. The Unit has monitored the distribution and abundance of littoral flora and fauna at some 15 sites in Dunmanus Bay . The majority of these sites have been visited annually, the purpose being to monitor any long term changes and have been done in conjunction with the monitoring of transect sites in Roaringwater and Long Island Bays. Certain selected sites on Sherkin Island are monitored monthly. These record seasonal alterations in the marine flora and fauna which supplements the annual monitoring of sites. This book of maps supplements fauna distribution maps already produced of Long Island and Roaringwater Bay sites. The continued monitoring and updating of this information will lead to a more comprehensive picture of the fauna of Dunmanus Bay and hopefully provide a baseline in fluctuations of intertidal populations under natural conditions against which the effect of any man-induced changes may be assessed.
