Abstract

The objective was to determine if meristic studies supported a premise of river-specific stocks of American shad (Alosa sapidissima), alewife (A. pseudoharenqus) and blueback herring (A. aestivalis) in Chesapeake Bay. Information gathered from this study will add to the general body of data gathered for the implementation of management plans for each species.
