AZMP Publications

1. AZMP Bulletin

Every year, the AZMP Bulletin presents an annual review of the general oceanographic conditions in the Northwest Atlantic region, including the Gulf of St. Lawrence, as well as articles concerning particular events, studies, or activities that took place in the Canadian Atlantic Zone during the previous year. It is destined for oceanographers, fisheries scientists, habitat, environment managers, and the general public.
