Introduction

Currently four electronic marine species registers exist for the northwest Atlantic. The four areas covered by these registers are the Bay of Fundy, the Gulf of Maine, the Canadian Atlantic, and the northwest Atlantic. 

The maps below show the bounding box areas for each register.

By including links to these registers on the CMB website we hope to to provide regional authoritative and comprehensive lists of names of marine organisms accessible in one location. Publishing the registers on the CMB web site should ensure that the information is accessible to a wider audience.

The content of the registers is controlled by regional taxonomic experts, not by database managers or CMB. Each register/list has an editorial management system where each taxonomic group is represented by an expert who has the authority over the content, and is responsible to control the quality of the information. Each of these main taxonomic editors can invite several specialists of smaller groups within their area of responsibility. 

Links are also included for ERMS (European Register of Marine Species) and WoRMS (World Register of Marine Species)
