An important aspect of NOAA's Marine Ecosystem Analysis (MESA) Puget Sound Energy-Related Project was to characterize the communities of the inshore marine waters of Washington State. With respect to the plankton, the least known major marine area is the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which separates Puget Sound from the Pacific Ocean. The present study was conducted in the Strait during 1976 and 1977 to describe the seasonal distribution and composition of phytoplankton, zooplankton, and ichthyoplankton populations. This information will add to MESA's overall biological baseline and could aid in monitoring and understanding the effects of possible petroleum discharges associated with increased tanker transport through the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
