(This amendment provides funding for new monitoring and assessment programs to support the work that VDH does in protecting human health and that VMRC does in managing the use of the state's aquatic resources. The funding would support 1) risk management of vibrosis, 2) determination of the carrying capacity for shell production via monthly surveys of phytoplankton, and 3) assessing coastal acidification, in support of an early warning system, and its impact on shellfish aquaculture.)
