NE Pacific Invert. Species List

Austin, W.C. 1985. An annotated checklist of marine invertebrates in the cold temperate northeast Pacific. 3 vols. 682 pp. Khoyatan, Cowichan Bay, BC.

This list includes the names, synonyms, and distribution for approximately 6,500 invertebrate metazoans. It is limited to those species which are either free-living or ectoparasitic and with populations known to occur within the region bounded along the coast from Point Conception, California north and west to Kodiak Island Alaska and extending seaward approximately 200 nautical miles. 

The list is now dated and it is hoped to update it in the near future should funding become available. An example of one updated section is that on “Sponges of the NE Pacific”.
