Invertebrates of the Salish Sea

Last updated about 1 month ago

A database of hundreds of species of marine invertebrates found in the northeastern Pacific ocean, especially those near Walla Walla University's Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory in Anacortes, Washington. The laboratory is on Fidalgo Island, one of the San Juan Islands in the Salish Sea, north of Seattle, Washington. The database includes descriptions of species from all the phyla of commonly observed marine invertebrates in the area. While major emphasis is placed on invertebrates large enough to be easily seen,the database contains many photographs of microscopic structures which help in identifying or understanding the species. Linked to a glossary of major terms. Last indexed October 29, 2014
