Final report detailing large scale eelgrass restoration on the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers.
April 2012 - Maryland Bay Grasses decline in 2011. Marylandís bay
grasses declined for the second year in a row, a result of extreme weather
conditions in both 2010 and 2011. Bay grass coverage fell 14% from 40,053 acres
in 2010 to approximately 34,461 acres in 2011. However, muddy waters from
Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee delayed, and in some cases prevented,
complete mapping in several sections of the Bay.
