Abstract

Recent fish kills and closures in the Pocomoke River have increased public concern over P.iesteda pjsddda, a microorganism that has been linked to large fish kills in North Carolina. In response to concerns about an unusual number of fish with lesions reported in Chesapeake Bay, especially the Pocomoke River, a Virginia Pfieste1iaTask Force was formed in May 1997. The Task force includes members of the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and research scientists from Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), and Old Dominion University (ODU).
