Address overarching priorities to increase and protect harvestable shellfish acres Improve water quality to prevent downgrades and achieve upgrades of shellfish harvesting areas
To identify effects upland management activities can have on aquatic habitats, perform an upland landuse characterization of the PS drainage basin in relation to sensitive aquatic habitats and shellfish harvesting areas. Landuse activities can contribute to the slow degradation of an area that cause prohibition of shellfish harvesting, limit recreational activities, and damage aquatic environments. This landuse characterization would include an analysis of classifications that would be relevant to land disturbing activities and possible contribution of pollutants that could affect aquatic land health. The result of the landuse c...
