Maryland Fisheries Management


Freshwater fishery management efforts are focused on non-tidal and cold-water fisheries throughout the state. This includes management of impoundments (lakes, reservoirs, and ponds), coldwater streams, and tidal freshwater streams. Management strategies are based upon population status of important gamefish species and includes determining population age and size structure, reproductive success, and habitat and environmental conditions. Freshwater fisheries within Maryland are predominantly recreational. Objectives of freshwater management include the protection, restoration and expansion of cold-water fish habitat; the enhancement of natural trout populations; stocking of hatchery-produced trout to enhance angling opportunities; and the maintenance and creation of public access to trout waters.

Regional Marine Biotechnology Associations


Modern marine biotechnology first developed in the U.S. and Australia during the 1970’s and 1980’s. These initiatives were followed by strong public sector involvement in Japan in 1989, when the Japanese government, together with 19 companies (MITI), created two Marine Bio-technology Institutes, organized an International Marine Biotechnology Conference (IMBC’89), founded a Japanese Biotechnology Society and established the Journal of Marine Biotechnology. In the U.S., The Journal of Molecular Marine Biology and Biotechnology was formed in the early 1990’s to handle an increasing number of manuscripts on molecular techniques applied to marine animals. IMBC’89 was followed by con-ferences in Baltimore, US, 1991; TromsØ, Norway, 1994; and Sorrento, Italy, 1997. IMBC’00 will be held in September, 2000 in Townsville, Australia.

South Carolina Aquatic Plant Management Society


Some aquatic plants, especially exotic species, have become an increasing problem in the Southeast where they obstruct navigable waterways, restrict water flow, clog water intakes, degrade water quality, and interfere with recreation. In South Carolina alone, over 50,000 acres of public waterways and thousands of acres of private waters are infested with aquatic weeds. Heightened interest in research and control of nuisance aquatic vegetation in South Carolina led to the formation of the S.C. Aquatic Plant Management Society in March of 1979.
