Abstract

The Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) participated in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Coastal Assessment (NCA) in 2003. As in the previous three years, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) through EPA grant funds contracted VIMS to collect fish at pre-determined stations. Data on invertebrate community structure and bottom habitat were collected also. VIMS’ responsibilities included collection, documentation and verification of all data and the storage of samples for future delivery to DEQ.
