Chitala ornata (Clown knifefish) The species, also known commonly as a clown featherback fish, occurs in Thailand, Lao PDR, Viet Nam, and Cambodia. It has been introduced to Myanmar and the Philippines for aquaculture. Juveniles are popular in the aquarium trade and large fish are popular for public aquaria. In some parts of the Philippines, its introduction is wreaking havoc on the local fishing industry. symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Chordata,Actinopterygii,Osteoglossiformes,Notopteridae,Chitala ornata,tropical,exotic,predation,clown featherback,clown knifefish,spotted knifefish

Marine protected area A marine protected area is a zone designated as a no-fishing or limited fishing or harvest area. This is a resource management practice that may be used when the marine resources are at risk due to human and natural activities such as over-fishing, habitat destruction, invasive species, and/or climate change. symbol,vector,illustration,icon,sign,buoy,conservation,protection,endangered,threatened,overfishing,destruction,stock,resource,management,human

Restored Chesapeake Bay oyster buy boat These traditional boats tended to the oyster fleets working the beds in the Bay, buying harvested oysters from the oystermen in the afternoon, and running those oysters to faraway markets and rail centers in Norfolk, Crisfield, Baltimore, and Washington DC, and to local shucking houses and canneries around the Bay. watercraft,fishing,oystering,shellfish,harvest,market,waterman,livelihood,occupation,working,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

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

Pickeral rush (Pontederia cordata) occupies wetland shoreline. This emergent aquatic, with its leaves and flowers above water and portions of the stem under water, is found typically in shallow, quiet water. The seeds can be eaten like nuts and the young leaf-stalks cooked as greens. Deer also feed on these plants. The common name suggests that this plant, as well as the fish known as pickerel, occupy the same habitat. plant,marsh,wetland,native,bog,swamp,Maryland
