From 7 March 1978 through 14 March 1978, an area of the bottom in the York River around Croaker Landing was studied to define the existing shellfish resource. The study was conducted at the request of the Division of Parks of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Economic Development in conjunction with the construction of the York River State Park. Comparison of this study with a post-dredging assessment will provide a measure of the possible impact of dredging activities on the surrounding bottom.
