The report summarizes results of the first year's research on the authors' Patuxent River estuary ecosystem modeling study, and potential implications of these results for managing the estuarine resources are emphasized. In the first section, the authors describe the development and calibration of their Ecosystem Process Model (EPM). The second section describes and documents the development of Fish Bioenergetic Models (FBM) for five species. The final section provides a description of water quality and living resources monitoring data collected for the Patuxent since 1984. Because the approaches used in this report are unfamiliar to some of the potential readers, the authors provide a brief discussion of the background leading up to the initiation of this project.
