“Dominion’s support makes possible the resumption of our extensive study of the blue crab population, which is possibly the most valuable fishery in Maryland at present,” said Dr. Kelton Clark, Director of Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory (PEARL). “This grant benefits any and all of us who are committed to the protection of this valuable resource.”
“We are pleased to provide funding for this program as part of our ongoing commitment to protecting the Chesapeake Bay,” said Mike Frederick, vice president of LNG Operations. “Cove Point’s record of environmental stewardship in southern Maryland stretches back more than three decades. This research will provide benefits far into the future.”
Morgan State University-Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory (PEARL) in St. Leonard, Md., will continue the study, which was started by George Abbe in 1968 near Calvert Cliffs. This work was of major importance to the assessments of blue crab stocks in Chesapeake Bay completed in 1997 and in 2005. It is also one of only four fishery-independent crab surveys used to assess the health of the Chesapeake Bay blue crab population and its fishery. Because the trends observed during the past 45 years have occurred slowly, a true reversal of trends will not be apparent in shorter 3-5 year studies, making the continuation of this long term study valuable.
