2014 State of the Bay Report

Dec 23, 2010
  • Description

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation's 2014 State of the Bay report presents a mix of good and bad news. The great news: Water quality indicator scores have improved significantly over the 2010 and 2008 scores. The worrisome news: Blue crabs and striped bass are not doing well. The declines in these metrics and in the phosphorus indicator offset the improvements in water quality. Overall, the 2014 score is unchanged from 2012.
