Abstract:
[For a more detailed metadata record, See: "http://gcmd.gsfc.nasa.gov/brd/brd_mdnr2.html"] This database contains disease and population data collected during Oxford Lab's annual Modified Fall Oyster Survey. The dataset contains information designed to characterize and assess the condition and trends of Maryland oyster populations. The program to collect the data was developed as a modification to the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Fisheries, existing Fall Oyster Survey. The purpose of the modifications was to develop a valid long-term oyster monitoring program from an existing survey which was geared to providing qualitative information on a site specific basis, primarily for specific fishery management needs. The design of the modified survey is intended to provide annual estimates of Baywide and regional oyster spatfall intensity, mortality, disease, and population size structure. Statistical validity and consistency of data were parmount considerations in the modified oyster design. The aim was to assist oyster management with a reliable and useful representation of the resource, based upon a feasible and cost-effective monitoring program consistent with historical observations. The study area covered from Tangiers Sound to Swan Point (northern part of mouth of Chester River) and consisted of 64 sites. Sixty-four charted oyster bars distributed throughout the Maryland portion of Chesapeake Bay were chosen to provide geographical coverage of oyster regions of the State. Site selection represented a consensus of Cooperative Oxford Laboratory and Fisheries Division personnel. The geographic area includes the areas of Broad Creek, Bay Bridge North, Chester River, Choptank River, Eastern Bay, Fishing Bay, Harris Creek, Holland Straits, Hongs River, Little Choptank River, Manokin River, Mid-Eastern Shore, Miles River, Nanticoke River, Poplar Island, Potomac River, Pocomoke Sound, Patuxent River, St. Marys River, Tred Avon River, Tangier Sound, Upper Bay, Wicomico River, and Western Shore.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Important deviations from sampling: Inconsistencies had little or no impact on the results reported in the report. The majority of comparisons between years are represented as averages. where summations were used in analysis, aggregate differences between years greatly outweighed any variation due to single sites.
