Gulf of Maine

Gulf of Maine

Historically rich fishing grounds, the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank have been so heavily harvested that they can no longer fully supply our ever increasing demand for their resources. The phytoplankton that eventually feed the fish, mollusks, and crustaceans that we catch are shown coloring the northwest Atlantic waters in the above VIIRS image from May 14, 2015.
