This report builds on two decades of aerial and ground surveys of SAV distribution and abundance data along with the development of SAV habitat requirements, establishment of SAV restoration goals and targets, compilation of historical water quality data, and implementation of a coordinated baywide monitoring program. The objectives of this report are to: describe trends in SAV distribution and abundance in Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries from 1971 to 1991; relate SAV distribution overtime with tiered distribution restoration goals and targets; compare trends in SAV distribution and abundance with corresponding trends in water quality; and correlate SAV distribution with river flow.
