Waterfowl Populations in the Upper Chesapeake Region

Description: The Upper Chesapeake region is one of the more important areas in North America for migrating and wintering waterfowl. Conditions here affect the welfare of waterfowl populations in the entire Atlantic Flyway. During the more recent years of this study there was a noticeable decline in the waterfowl populations in this region, probably as a result of destruction and disturbance of habitat along with a steady increase in hunting pressure. The purpose of this report is to present information on the distribution, ecology, and harvest of waterfowl in the Chesapeake Bay Region, so that this information can be used as a guide to management and preservation of waterfowl populations.

Atlas of Coal/Minerals and Important Resource Problem Areas for Fish and Wildlife in the Conterminous United States

Description: This atlas highlights areas in the conterminous United States of potential concern involving coal and minerals development activities and fish and wildlife resources, in particular the Important Resource Problem Areas (IRPs) designated in 1980 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) as areas of emphasis in policy making.

Some Biological Effects of Ditching Tidewater Marshes

Description: Just a century ago some 625,000 acres of salt, brackish, and freshwater marshes bordered the Atlantic coast from Maine to Virginia. As early as 1885, however, work was begun to reclaim for agriculture considerable acreages of the fresher tidal lands. This research was conducted to study the effects of marshland drainage on plants, wildlife and wildlife habitat.

Fish and Shellfish Preferences of Household Consumers

Description: "This report is an analysis of a nationwide survey in October 1951 of household consumers' preferences for fresh and frozen fish and shellfish. The survey was conducted under the auspices of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service to aid the Nation's fishing industry, which is composed predominantly of small firms that find it difficult to make adequate contacts with consumers" (p. 1).

Otter Trawl Explorations in Philippine Waters

Description: A trawl fishery of considerable magnitude has developed in the Philippines since liberation from the Japanese in 1945. At the inception of the Philippines Fishery Program of the United States Fish and Wildlife Serve, the trawl fishery was using a Japanese beam trawl and was, for the most part, confined to Manila Bay. Realizing that the supply of fish badly needed by the Philippine public could be augmented by trawling, the program inaugurated exploratory fishing voyages to likely grounds and demonstrated the otter trawl in important fishing centers. Twenty-four areas were surveyed, and a number of drags sufficient to demonstrate the possibilities were made in each. The results are tabulated and described, along with the composition of the catch and catch by depth.
