Appointed by the Chesapeake Bay Office of the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, an FEP (fisheries ecosystem plan) Technical Advisory Panel was charged with developing ecosystem-based approaches to fisheries management and information for the Chesapeake Bay in accordance with the key recommendations by the National Marine Fisheries Service Ecosystem Principles Advisory Panel of 1999. This volume contains the results of their work, a report that outlines the structural elements of a fisheries ecosystem plan, including definitions of ecosystem boundaries, food web interactions and modeling, habitat requirements and management, patterns of total removals, characterization and incorporation of uncertainty in fisheries management, indicators of ecosystem health and biological reference points, monitoring in support of ecosystem-based fisheries management, externalities, and economic and social dimensions of the fisheries ecosystem.
