A Summary of Implementation and Demonstration Projects in Bays and Estuaries


The Massachusetts Bays Program (MBP) and Casco Bay Program have recently been added to the National Estuary Program (NEP). A major theme of the MBP and CBEP is to take action now to protect and restore the Bay ecosystems. To achieve this agenda, the MBP and CBEP are interested in better understanding the many implementation and demonstration activities that have been undertaken in other estuary programs and how they may apply to the problems facing Massachusetts and Casco Bays. Therefore, in this project, various demonstration and implementation activities undertaken in other estuary programs are reviewed for effectiveness, transferability, and applicability to Massachusetts and Casco Bays.
