The plan proposes improved means of assessing stocks of finfish and shellfish in Chesapeake Bay and identifies data needs for stock assessment models for Bay fisheries. Recommendations include better ways to collect catch, effort, and biological data from commercial and recreational landings, in addition to long-term surveys for estimating relative abundance of important species in all regions of the Bay and its tributaries.
