Monitoring of the lower Chesapeake Bay zooplankton populations was begun in March 1978 to provide a data base needed as a prerequisite to future evaluations of faunal change. An initial report (Grant and Olney, 1979) presented the basic design and sampling techniques of the Lower Bay Zooplankton Program (LBZMP), along with results of the first winter-spring cruise.
These surveys are conducted during four months of the year, with complete taxonomic analysis in March and August and analyses limited to meroplanktonic fish eggs and larvae and decapod crustacean larvae tn June and July. The present report includes results of the summer 1978 full taxonomic survey, conducted in the period 23-25 August 1978.
