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

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients

Pervious Surfaces Used to Promote Stormwater Infiltration and Retention  Pervious surfaces, such as modular paver blocks, allow the soil to retain stormwater.  Impervious surfaces prevent the infiltration of stormwater, increasing the volume and velocity of surface runoff.     diagram,pervious,impervious,surfaces,stormwater,infiltration,pavement,pavers,drains
