Reports

This report presents the results of striped bass (Marone saxatilis) tagging and monitoring activities in Virginia during the penod 1 September 2001 through 31 October 2002. It includes an assessment of the biological characteristics of striped bass taken from the 2002 spring spawning run, estimates of annual survtval based on annual spring tagging, and the results of the fall 2001 directed mortality study that is cooperative 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 striped bass ...


Marina Site Suitablity Tool : Final Project Report, Marcia Berman, Kirk J. Havens, Tamia Rudnicky, Thomas A. Barnard Nov 2002

Marina Site Suitablity Tool : Final Project Report, Marcia Berman, Kirk J. Havens, Tamia Rudnicky, Thomas A. Barnard

Reports

In coordination with the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Department of Environmental Quality, the Chesapeake Bay Local Assistance Department and the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), the Center for Coastal Resources Management at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) was contracted to develop a tool for local governments that would assist in the decision-making process for marina development. In particular, the agencies wanted to develop a visual representation of the VMRC Criteria for the Siting of Marinas or Community Facilities for Boat Mooring. This was accomplished by gathering available data sets and developing geographic information system (GIS) data ...

An Analysis Of Shoreline Development Risk For Secondary Dune Systems In Tidewater Virginia With Associated Management Recommendations, Lyle M. Varnell, C. Scott Hardaway Jr. Nov 2002

An Analysis Of Shoreline Development Risk For Secondary Dune Systems In Tidewater Virginia With Associated Management Recommendations, Lyle M. Varnell, C. Scott Hardaway Jr.

Reports

This project was done in response to concerns by environmental resource managers of historic and potential adverse impacts to Virginia’s secondary dune ecosystems. Virginia environmental regulatory programs have little decision-making authority over the use of secondary dunes as these areas are not included in the Coastal Primary Sand Dune Act (the Dunes Act). These areas function as estuarine edge habitat and provide natural upland erosion control, and are thus valuable to estuarine and coastal plain fauna and adjacent upland property owners.


Public Beach Assessment Report Central Beach And Castlewood Park Beach Colonial Beach, Virginia, Donna A. Milligan, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., R. H. Brindley, G. R. Thomas Oct 2002

Public Beach Assessment Report Central Beach And Castlewood Park Beach Colonial Beach, Virginia, Donna A. Milligan, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., R. H. Brindley, G. R. Thomas

Reports

The purpose of this report is to document the recent history of Colonial Beach’s Potomac River shoreline as well as assess the historical shoreline evolution and status of the beach zone. Review of previously-published literature, field survey data, aerial photos, and computer modeling were used to address the study objectives.

Monitoring Relative Abundance Of American Shad In Virginia’S Rivers 2001 Annual Report, John E. Olney, Kristin L. Maki Apr 2002

Monitoring Relative Abundance Of American Shad In Virginia’S Rivers 2001 Annual Report, John E. Olney, Kristin L. Maki

Reports

Concern about the decline in landings of American shad (Alosa sapidissima) along the Atlantic coast prompted the development of an interstate fisheries management plan (FMP) under the auspices of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Management Program (ASMFC 1999). Legislation enables imposition of federal sanctions on fishing in those states that fail to comply with the FMP. To be in compliance, coastal states are required to implement and maintain fishery-dependent and fishery-independent monitoring programs as specified by the FMP. For Virginia, these requirements include spawning stock assessments, the collection of biological data on the spawning run (e.g., age-structure, sex ratio ...


Virginia’S Coastal Program: Strategic Mapping Of Management Goals, Jennifer Newton, Pamela Mason, Carl Hershner Mar 2002

Virginia’S Coastal Program: Strategic Mapping Of Management Goals, Jennifer Newton, Pamela Mason, Carl Hershner

Reports

Virginia’s Coastal Resources Management Program is a networked program bringing together the activities of many state agencies and institutions to achieve the overarching mission of coastal zone management. The Program’s objectives were originally set out in a series of 25 goals in the 1986 Executive Order (see Appendix B) that established the Program for the Commonwealth under the federal Coastal Zone Management Act. Beginning in May of 1999, representatives of the Virginia state agencies involved with the networked Coastal Program attended a series of meetings to develop logic maps of these twenty-five goals. This document represents the final ...
