Abstract

The RIV Bay Eagle was built at Crown Point, Louisiana, in 1980 as a crewboat designed to ferry personnel and supplies to oilfield platforms. This boat was converted to a research vessel by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in 1987. It has performed scientific missions throughout the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries and along the continental shelf of the Mid-Atlantic Bight.

This guide has been compiled to outline the procedures, capabilities and safety standards under which research is planned and carried out aboard the RIV Bay Eagle.
