The major portion of this report is an identification key to the polychaetes of New York Bight. The key covers polychaetes collected on six surveys at a site twelve miles south of Fire Island. An introduction to the key defines terms which may be unfamiliar. A discussion of the data and a summary of the life histories of the five most common polychaetes in the samples follows the key. Possible relationships between life histories and abundance are suggested.
