Ecological studies in the Bays and other waterways near Little Egg Inlet and in the Ocean in the vicinity of the proposed site for the Atlantic Generating Station, New Jersey (NCEI Accession 7500270)

In September, 1971, Ichthyological Associates began an ecological study of Ocean sites off Long Beach Island and Little Egg Inlet, New Jersey, for Public Service Electric and Gas Company. After 1 March 1972, sampling was restricted to the vicinity of the proposed Site of the Atlantic Generating Station (AGS).

The AGS is to be located approximately 2.8 statute miles off the coastline (off Little Egg Inlet) at 39 degree -28' - 20" N latitude and 74 degree - 15' - 20" W longitude. Two 1150 MWe nuclear generating units will be on floating barges and protected by a large semicircular, rubblemound breakwater.

The first objective of the study was to identify and describe the biota of the area both spatially and temporally. Subsequently, the Site was examined to determine if it was unique biologically from the surrounding area. This was done in part of the benthic program by comparing a transect (inshore-offshore) across the Site with ones north, south, and seaward of the Site.

This progress reports covers the period January through December, 1973. Quantitative data were obtained whenever possible and were statistically analyzed to relate information on populations at the Site to those from surrounding areas. Species discussions are presented which summarize biological findings for most of the important forms in the area.

The report is organized into three volumes. This volume contains data on epifauna, algae, benthic invertebrates, and a discussion and distribution maps of important species of fish and macro-invertebrates. A point summary for the first three sections above is included on page 12 to page 15 in Volume 1. Physiochemical data pertinent to all biological collections in 1973 is included on page 19 to 24 in Volume 1.

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information accurately represents all available information from the legacy database at the time that this description was created. However, proper attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
