The Chesapeake Bay Integrated Research Program - Fisheries, is a competitively based program that supports research, monitoring, modeling and management addressing various aspects of Chesapeake Bay fisheries. The Chesapeake Bay is a complex and dynamic ecosystem that supports many fisheries that are economically important both regionally and nationally. The NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office in collaboration with the Fisheries Steering Committee and the Cooperative Oxford Laboratory guide various Chesapeake Bay fisheries? issues including management and research in an ecosystem context. Funded projects foster our knowledge and understanding of the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem by: (1) providing biological information and life history characteristics for many individual Chesapeake Bay fisheries stocks, and (2) broadening the multispecies knowledge base for development of Fisheries Ecosystem Planning. All projects supported through this program must address recommendations of ?Fisheries Ecosystem Planning for the Chesapeake Bay? (http://noaa.chesapeakebay.net/fisheries) and provide timely (real-time) information for making resource management decisions in an ecosystem context.
