Abstract The New York-New Jersey Harbor system is an important economic, recreational, and aesthetic resource supporting many kinds of habitat and species. Among the many important species of fish and shellfish in this estuarine and coastal system are striped bass, white perch, tomcod, and blue crabs in the estuarine portion; and sea bass, bluefish, menhaden, herring, sturgeon, shad, hake, winter flounder, lobster, clams and oysters in the marine portion. Historically, the Harbor supported several large commercial and recreational fisheries. Currently, there remain some isolated, small-scale commercial fisheries (e.g., clams, crabs, menhaden) and a large recreational fishery (MacKenzie, 1992). Since the Estuary is on the Atlantic flyway, it is also an important resting and feeding area for migrating birds. Many birds, both migratory and regional, utilize the Harbor environs for feeding and raising young. Birds commonly found in the region include herons, egrets, ducks, plovers, sandpipers, gulls and geese. Bald eagles and peregrine falcons, both federally-listed endangered species, are less common inhabitants. The land uses above and surrounding the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary make the Harbor particularly susceptible to toxic contamination. For more than a century, it has been the recipient of pollutants generated by the human activities that exist around it.
