This report is the result of a multi-jurisdictional effort to explore current knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay's catfish populations. Long-term surveys of catfish species do not exist in the Chesapeake Bay region, and basic biological data are fragmented with small, regional studies conducted over intermittent periods of time. This report represents a regional cooperative effort to bring together all available information and assimilate the best possible understanding of catfish biology, ecology and stock dynamics of native and introduced catfish species in the Chesapeake Bay system. This report also documents the evolution of social, economic, and recreational dependence as fisheries have developed following the naturalizaton of non-native catfish species. As efforts shift to exploit more abundant or less regulation resources, resilient species such as catfish should be carefully monitored. By assembling current information and identifying research and data needs, this report establishes a reference from which to gauge and direct future management.
