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

Homeowner is allowed to fill in wetlands On a property that was grandfathered to build on a tiny waterfront lot, the owner was allowed by the local zoning department to fill in a low wetland where his well (white pipe) and dock electric service (right center of photo) were located. As this photo documents, this low area was frequently flooded. sea level rise,flooding,critical area,development,Talbot County,Maryland

Adaptation to Climate Change Conceptual diagram illustrating preparations for the effects of climate change: Elevating and moving houses and utilities away from flood plain boundaries make them less vulnerable to storms and may lower flood insurance rates. Rather than building a concrete levy to protect property, consider a natural shoreline that offers the same benefit. diagram,climate change,global warming,sea level rise,flooding,adaptation,mitigation,protection,erosion
