Evaluation Of Striped Bass Stocks In Virginia : Monitoring And Tagging Studies, 2004-2008 Annual Report 1 September 2004 - 31 August 2005, Philip W. Sadler, John M. Hoenig, Robert E. Harris, B. Gail Holliman Dec 2005

Evaluation Of Striped Bass Stocks In Virginia : Monitoring And Tagging Studies, 2004-2008 Annual Report 1 September 2004 - 31 August 2005, Philip W. Sadler, John M. Hoenig, Robert E. Harris, B. Gail Holliman

Reports

This report presents the results of striped bass (Marone saxatilis) tagging and monitoring activities in Virginia during the period 1 September 2004 through 31 August 2005. It includes an assessment of the biological characteristics of striped bass taken from the 2005 spring spawning run, estimates of annual survival based on annual spring tagging, and the results of the fall 2004 directed mortality study that is a collaborative effort with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. The information contained in this report is required by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and is used to implement a coordinated management plan for ...

Chesapeake Bay Dune Systems: Monitoring, Donna A. Milligan, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., George R. Thomas, Lyle M. Varnell, Thomas A. Barnard, William G. Reay, Travis R. Comer, Christine A. Wilcox

Reports

This project is aimed at developing an understanding of detailed beach and dune change. During the course of this monitoring, Hurricane Isabel impacted the coastal plain of Virginia and significantly altered almost all Bay shorelines to one degree or another in September 2003. This is particularly true of shorelines facing north, east, and south since the winds shifted as the storm passed. This event provided an opportunity to measure the changes to natural dune systems around the Bay due to the storm as well as their recovery after the event.


Interagency Shoreline Management Consensus Document, Center For Coastal Resources Management, Virginia Institute Of Marine Science May 2005

Interagency Shoreline Management Consensus Document, Center For Coastal Resources Management, Virginia Institute Of Marine Science

Reports

There are concerns in the general public and regulatory and environmental advisory agencies regarding the apparent inconsistent and /or contradictory guidance offered to property owners regarding shoreline management in Virginia. There has been a growing interest among the agencies that manage, or otherwise have a role in shoreline management, to develop a Virginia perspective on the issue. This project to develop a consensus position from a VIMS perspective, with funding from the Virginia Coastal Program, may serve as the initiation of an effort to develop consensus guidance on shoreline management that integrates the issues and concerns extant in the various ...


The Chesapeake Bay Breakwater Database Project Hurricane Isabel Impacts To Four Breakwater Systems, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Donna A. Milligan, Christine A. Wilcox, Linda M. Meneghini, G. R. Thomas, Travis R. Comer May 2005

The Chesapeake Bay Breakwater Database Project Hurricane Isabel Impacts To Four Breakwater Systems, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Donna A. Milligan, Christine A. Wilcox, Linda M. Meneghini, G. R. Thomas, Travis R. Comer

Reports

The Chesapeake Bay Breakwater Database is being developed by personnel in the Virginia Institute of Marine Science’s (VIMS) Shoreline Studies Program for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) in order to:

1) document breakwater system performance around Chesapeake Bay relative to predictions

2) develop guidelines for breakwaters in sand limited and fetch limited systems such as estuaries, reservoirs, lakes and bays.


Status Of The Major Oyster Diseases In Virginia 2004 A Summary Of The Annual Monitoring Program, Ryan Carnegie, Eugene M. Burreson Mar 2005

Status Of The Major Oyster Diseases In Virginia 2004 A Summary Of The Annual Monitoring Program, Ryan Carnegie, Eugene M. Burreson

Reports

2004 was the second very wet year in a row. While rainfall and streamflows were normal in winter and early spring, and just slightly above average during the summer, the fall of 2004 was nearly as wet as the year before. Salinities were again depressed throughout the lower Bay. Water temperatures were below normal during the winter, but typical otherwise. Low salinities and, in the winter, temperatures brought continued abatement in the oyster diseases caused by Perkinsus marinus (Dermo) and Haplosporidium nelsoni (MSX). Among quarterly James River Survey sites, maximum annual P. marinus prevalences were the lowest they had been ...


Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base Chesapeake Bay Shoreline, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Donna A. Milligan, George R. Thomas, Linda M. Meneghini Jan 2005

Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base Chesapeake Bay Shoreline, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Donna A. Milligan, George R. Thomas, Linda M. Meneghini

Reports

Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base (NAB) is located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. It’s shoreline along the southern Chesapeake Bay extends from Little Creek Inlet eastward approximately 1.5 miles to the NAB’s eastern boundary. In 1997, a study and report entitled “LITTLE CREEK NAVAL AMPHIBIOUS BASE, CHESAPEAKE BAY SHORELINE, SHORELINE MANAGEMENT PLAN and OFFICER’S BEACH SHORE PROTECTION EVALUATION” was produced by VIMS’s Shoreline Studies Program (Hardaway et al., 1997). The purpose of that report was to assess the rates and patterns of beach change along the Chesapeake Bay shoreline at Little Creek NAB in order to ...

Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program Annual Report 2004 (And 2003 Update), John A. Lucy, C.M. Bain Iii

Reports

The Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program (VGFTP), initiated in 1995, coordinates tagging and a tagrecapture fish database generated through contributed efforts of a dedicated corps of trained marine anglers. Through 2003-2004, the program’s database includes over 78,000 records of tag-released fish and approximately 7,800 recapture records of tagged fish.

Yorktown Beach 2003-2005, With Hurricane Isabel Impacts, Donna A. Milligan, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Linda M. Meneghini, George R. Thomas, Christine A. Wilcox Jan 2005

Yorktown Beach 2003-2005, With Hurricane Isabel Impacts, Donna A. Milligan, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Linda M. Meneghini, George R. Thomas, Christine A. Wilcox

Reports

The Yorktown Public Beach is located on the south side of the York River at Yorktown, Virginia (Figure 1). It is approximately 1,200 feet in length. Historically, the beach was a product of erosion of nearby sandy upland banks and the littoral transport system. Over the years, the beaches along the waterfront began to narrow as the natural sediment supply was depleted by hardening of the updrift shorelines and were easily overwashed in storms and had continually eroded. Since 1978, various projects have taken place along Yorktown’s shoreline in order to abate erosion, provide a recreational beach, and ...
