The first objective of the 1986 work was to accurately determine SAV distribution for the entire bay and tributaries using aerial photographic methods and to compare distribution patterns in discrete sections of the bay with past data. In particular, interest was centered in areas of mid-section of the bay where a substantial increase of SAV was observed in 1985 (almost 400% increase) from that recorded in 1984.
