Hardened shoreline prevents erosion. Stone rip-rap installed by the property owners in an attempt to prevent shoreline erosion. Hardened edges along the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers reduces natural shoreline habitat that fish and other marine animals depend on for food and shelter. bulkhead,protection,stabilize,habitat,vegetation,amphibian,reptile,invertebrate,insect,wetland,marsh,river,tributary,Eastern Shore,Talbot County,Maryland

Pound net The oldest type of net used by the Chesapeake Bay watermen is called a pound net. Wooden stakes are pushed into the bottom of the Bay, spaced apart in a line that runs across the tide. Nets are strung between the stakes and along the bottom of the river, making a fish trap. In late February the pound netter starts to put in the stakes. By the middle of March he will set his nets and start fishing. Each day the waterman goes out to the pound net and scoops the fish out with a hand net. He will not remove the pound net, except for many repairs, until November. fishing,occupation,livelihood,Talbot County,Maryland

Storm Timing and Impacts on Chesapeake Bay Flora and Fauna The timing of tropical storms and hurricanes can have major impacts on the life histories of Chesapeake Bay flora and fauna. Changes in water salinity can cause early spawning in some species, such as the blue crab, and increased sediment can cause widespread die-off of seagrasses.   diagram,eco-rythm,storms,chesapeake,tropical,hurricanes,early,migration,timing

Conowingo Dam Reservoir and Susquehanna Flats Depiction In the section of the river above the dam builds up with sediment, making the dam shallower. High water flow causes scouring and the transport of sediment and associated nutrients over the dam.  On this other side of the dam phosphorus mobilizes in reaction with salt water.  Further down the river seagrass beds grow on the Susquehanna flats.    diagram,conowingo,dam,susquehanna,flats,sediment,deposition,scouring,sediment,transport,nutrients
