The Currituck Sound drainage basin experienced rapid population growth and development during the past two decades. As a result of the changes that have occurred and are continuing to occur in the watershed, natural resource managers face new management issues. The objectives of this study were to (1) prepare an up-to-date, computer-accessible bibliography on Currituck Sound and Back Bay, Virginia; (2) identify perceived management issues in the study area; and (3) analyze an array of responsive, prospective management alternatives. No attempt was made to select a preferred alternative for future management of the Currituck Sound drainage basin as this decision was outside the scope of the current project. It is intended, however, that this work will provide insight to government officials and resource managers charged with making such decisions for the Currituck Sound-Back Bay complex and the larger Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Study Area.
