The composition of phytoplankton and the general distribution patterns of the major taxonomic groups are discussed for the eastern coastal waters of the USA. A species list of 609 phytoplankters is given with dominant cold- and warm-water forms noted along the coast. The ubiquitous species along the east coast were Skeletonema costatum, Thalassionema nitzschioides, and Coccolithus huxleyi.
