Shad Abundance (2015)

American shad were once the most abundant and economically important species in the Chesapeake Bay. Shad are anadromous fish and spend most of their lives in the ocean, returning to freshwater rivers to spawn after they reach maturity. Data for the York, Potomac, Rappahannock and lower James Rivers were provided by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science via an ongoing Catch per Unit Effort (CPUE) study involving American Shad gill-netting. Data for the Susquehanna and upper James Rivers represent published fishway passage values for Conowingo and Boshers Dams, respectively.

Long-Term Trends for Bottom Orthophosphate in the Chesapeake Bay: 1999-2013

Long-term trends were computed by state partners using the Seasonal Kendall non-parametric technique for annual data collected from 1999-2013. Highly significant trends are indicated with triangles and possible trends are show with colored circles. Bottom Orthophosphate concentrations are decreasing/improving significantly at 21 stations, possibly decreasing at 7 stations, increasing/degrading significantly at 6 stations, and possibly increasing at 3 stations.
