This 200-mile-long bay is the largest of the nation's 130 estuaries. Fed by the Atlantic Ocean and a 64,000-square-mile watershed, the Bay supports thousands of types of plants, fish, crustacea, and other animal life. Contained within the Atlantic Migratory Bird Flyway, the Bay is the winter home to approximately one million waterfowl - roughly one third of all waterfowl that winter along the Atlantic Coast. The Bay is also a recreational resource for those who live in and visit the basin, and with its production of 500 million pounds of seafood annually, it's a seafood lover's delight!
