South Atlantic Bight Marine Assessment Information Available

The South Atlantic Bight Marine Assessment builds on decades of marine research and data collection to improve understanding of critical habitats and their relationships with key species and oceanographic properties. The study covered from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay to the Florida Keys and inland from the area of tidal influence seaward to the edge of the continental shelf. This assessment covered a variety of data areas, such as habitats and marine mammals, and created areas of ecological importance.
