The US EPA Chesapeake Bay Program's Implementation Committee established the Living Resources Task Force (LRTF) to develop a living resource-based approach for defining habitat objectives for the Bay. Through a series of meetings, the Task Force outlined an approach to establish living resources objectives by first identifying habitat requirements for selected target species. The habitat requirements are intended to provide planners, managers, researchers, and modelers of the Bay with information on the minimum habitat quality needed by the target species and the plants and animals upon which the target species depend for food. These requirements can be used to estimate the feasibility, benefits, and potential costs of maintaining and protecting an estuarine environment suitable for the successful reproduction and survival of living resources.
