Occohannock Creek Shoreline Erosion Assessment And Living Shoreline Options Report, C. Scott Hardaway Jr., Donna A. Milligan, Kevin O'Brien, Christine Wilcox, Shoreline Studies Program, Marcia Berman, Sharon Killeen, Tami Rudnicky, Center For Coastal Resources Management

Reports

This study provides information to Occohannock Creek property owners to help them assess their shoreline stability and their options if erosion is a problem. In the past, shoreline erosion control options were typically limited to rip-rap, groins, or bulkheads. These hard structures often destroyed marsh and other habitat and may not have provided the protection desired. Other methods of erosion control now exist that have been used in a variety of conditions and evaluated for their durability and performance. The alternative techniques incorporate vegetation and are referred to as Living Shoreline designs. Conditions on Occohannock Creek make it a very ...


Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program Annual Report 2007, John A. Lucy, Lewis Gillingham Jan 2008

Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program Annual Report 2007, John A. Lucy, Lewis Gillingham

Reports

Initiated in 1995, the Virginia Game Fish Tagging Program (VGFTP) database is comprised of tagged fish records, and corresponding recaptured fish records. These records are primarily generated through contributed efforts of a dedicated corps of trained marine anglers targeting only a select number of target species. The recaptured fish records are the result of observant individuals noticing the tags in live or freshly-boxed/shipped fish. Recapture reports originate from a mix of sources, including marine anglers, commercial fishers, workers in fish packinghouses, wholesale and retail sellers of fish, and NOAA Fisheries observers on coastal trawl boats.

Chesapeake 2000 or C2K is a multi-jurisdictional agreement between the states of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, the Chesapeake Bay Commission and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, representing the federal government, to restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay’s ecosystem. This agreement commits the participants to achieve five major restoration goals, 22 sub-objectives or categories, and 102 specific commitments or restoration activities. The five major goals are the following: (1) restore and protect natural living resources; (2) restore and protect vital habitat; (3) restore and protect water quality; (4) promote sound land use; and (5) promote ...
