Abstract
Comparisons of the Demonstration Corridor with baseline stations indicate that the phytoplankton community structure and biomass were similar. Zooplankton biomass was greater outside the corridor and benthic invertebrate biomass was highest at inshore sites within the corridor. Suspended solids were low through the samples series, but 60 percent greater within the corridor.
