The program seeks to establish a strong understanding of the Chesapeake Bay system, the complex connections among organisms and their habitats, multispecies interactions, and the wide range of processes that affect their dynamics. Research conducted under this program should help to inform fisheries management and natural resource decisions through increased understanding of climate change and related ecological shifts, improved habitat assessment techniques, quantification of habitat quantity and quality impacts on fishery productivity, and the integration of species, habitat and ecosystem information. Research must also address a research priority; examining the role of inshore habitat in offshore productivity for Summer Flounder and Black Sea Bass or assessing the estuarine nursery habitat available in the Chesapeake Bay for Summer Flounder and Black Sea Bass.

Funds: Between $25,000 and $125,000 for a duration of 2 years
