Abstract

In 1975 a study was completed by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) entitled "An Environmental Assessment of the Hampton .River and Vicinity." This was for federal project I-64 (142)240 - State Project 0064-114-103. It was completed for Sverdrup and Parcel Consulting Engineers, St. Louis, Missouri. A part of this report consisted of an .evaluation of the molluscan resource in a zone 600 feet wide on either side of the existing bridge. Leased as well as public bottoms were studied.

This report concluded that "the present level of production and the potential productivity (of the area) are low." Since construction is again planned on I-64, a resurvey of the area was again indicated.
