The Chesapeake Bay received a C grade in the 2016 UMCES Chesapeake Bay Report Card, which was released May 8 along Baltimore's Inner Harbor. This is the 11th UMCES Chesapeake Bay Report Card. The score of 54% showed a slight improvement from 2015. Improvements in overall health are holding steady, while fish populations strongly improved from a 73% in 2015 to a 90% in 2016, an A grade. This year's report card also focused on the partnerships that work to improve the Bay's health.
