Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85


A brief review is given of the effects of acid rain and other pollutants on the fish spawning grounds in the Chesapeake Bay area. Given the need for improved monitoring of the Bay and it's tributaries, this paper will describe what additional steps could be taken. In particular, the increased use of surface investigations in support of remote sensing, aircraft data collection, and Landsat data is suggested. These techniques should establish what is killing the fish.
