The Tred Avon River Story Map highlights the results of an ecosystem assessment conducted by NCCOS to determine how different land uses have affected the Tred Avon River. The Tred Avon is an important tributary of Maryland's Choptank River complex, which NOAA designated a Habitat Focus Area in 2014. The Story Map and the assessment will help coastal managers better understand the effects of land use on the adjacent estuary and develop management strategies to protect the health of the aquatic ecosystem.
