This implementation plan is intended to reflect the language and the intent of the Policy statement: It shall be the policy of the Jurisdictions in the Chesapeake Bay basin to oppose the first-time introduction of any non-indigenous aquatic species into the unconfined waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries for any reason unless environmental and economic evaluations are conducted and reviewed in order to ensure that risks associated with the first-time introduction are acceptably low. The signatories to the Adoption Statement are committed to sharing information and to carefully assessing through a joint review process all proposed first-time introductions of non-indigenous aquatic species in the Chesapeake Bay basin. The signatories to the Adoption Statement are also committed to working together to prevent unintentional introductions of non-indigenous aquatic species and to minimize the negative effects of undesired aquatic species within the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.
