The report documents the distribution of submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), principally rooted vascular macrophytes, in the Chesapeake Bay, its tributaries, and Chincoteague Bay mapped during May to October 1990 at a scale of 1:24,000 using black and white aerial photography. SAV bed perimeter information was digitized and stored in a computerized data base. SAV in Chincoteague Bay increased slightly in distribution from 1989, with 2,494 hectares mapped in 1990. All of the SAV consisted of R. maritima and Z. marina, and was located along the eastern side of the bay behind Assateague Island.
