CRC Publications

Welcome to the CRC Publications database. Here, you can search for and access CRC publications dating back to the 1970s, but excluding historical publications produced by the CRC for the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) partnership’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC). Historical STAC publications are archived in a separate database that can be accessed here. These include CRC-facilitated STAC Review Reports and STAC Workshop Summary reports on a wide variety of topics dating back to 1984.

Baywide and Coordinated Chesapeake Bay Fish Stock Monitoring

The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) and NOAA’s Chesapeake Bay Office (NCBO) co-hosted a baywide workshop of scientists and managers from academic, federal, and state agencies in early March 2006. The workshop’s focus was discussion of a potential baywide, integrated, fish stock monitoring program that facilitates cross-bay fisheries management. The opening remarks by J. Travelstead, Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), outlined fisheries management needs for the three tidal fisheries management organizations — the VMRC, the Potomac River Fisheries Commission (PRFC), and Maryland’s Department of Natural Resources (MD DNR). Following presentations highlighted other successful fish monitoring programs in Canada and the Eastern U.S. These presentations served as the foundation for workshop participant discussions on linking management needs with monitoring possibilities for the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. The discussions by participants, along with a compilation and consensus on future steps in developing a baywide fish monitoring program for the Chesapeake, yielded the following initial concepts for advancing such a program.

Hurricane Isabel in Perspective: Proceedings of a Conference CRC, UMCES, VIMS, NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office, EPA, MD DNR, VA and MD NERR, Campbell Foundation, and USGS sponsored conference, November 15

Downtown Annapolis, Alexandria, and Fells Point in Baltimore under water; piers and docks destroyed, cars parked several hundred yards inland inundated; year-plus frustrations with federal and personal insurance recoveries for storm damage. What was so different about this hurricane versus others that have blown over the Bay? In fact, Isabel was not a hurricane when she arrived but a tropical storm, yet she still caused devastating damage in the tidal areas of the Bay and its tributaries. Why, with the best hurricane projections possible, was the region caught unprepared? Why was there so much damage when everyone knew the storm was approaching and where she would track? These questions have motivated managers, local government officials, and the scientific community since Isabel visited in September 2003 and inspired a cross-community conference, “Hurricane Isabel in Perspective” held at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, Maryland in November 2004. Sponsored by the Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES), the conference encouraged participation by scientists, managers, and many emergency responders to explore the reasons for the devastating impacts of the hurricane and to discuss openly why the advanced forecasting tools and preparedness teams were unable to protect property throughout the region.
