Abstract The study is part of a larger investigation of the biological consequences of waste disposal in the New York Bight. Polychaetes from the samples of three cruises (December, 1972; February and May 1973) in the Bight were identified. 'Bamboo worms' (families Maldanidae and Owenidae) were the most abundant and ubiquitous polychaetes and would therefore be the best indicator species to monitor pollution in the area. No temporal changes in the densities of polychaete populations were evident, but summer and fall collections must be analyzed to complete the seasonal distribution.
