(This amendment provides $599,199 GF the first year and $626,399 GF the second year to continue monitoring fish populations in the lower Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Discontinuation of these fish surveys would lead to noncompliance with state mandates and potential closure of several of the Commonwealth's fisheries. The amendment requests GF support for this program due to recent decreased federal support.)
