A Story Map highlights research results of an ecosystem assessment of land use effects in eight sub-estuaries of the Tred Avon River; an important tributary of the Maryland Choptank River complex which was designated a NOAA Habitat Focus Area in 2014.

This Story Map is based on NOAA Technical Memorandum NOS NCCOS 251 completed by NCCOS’ Marine Spatial Ecology Division at the Cooperative Oxford Laboratory. This Ecosystem Assessment is an integral part of the overall Choptank River Habitat Focus Area and will be shared with other partners including Envision the Choptank and Shore rivers.

Results of this study and Story Map will help managers understand effects of land use and importance of management strategies and decisions to keep estuaries healthy.
