2018 State of Our Estuaries Report

Every five years, the Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership (PREP) reports on the environmental condition of the Great Bay and Hampton-Seabrook estuaries. Our goal is to provide an assessment that resource managers, residents, community leaders, scientists, policy makers, and others can use in their efforts to understand, manage, and protect our local estuaries of national significance.

The 2018 State of Our Estuaries report presents 23 indicators of estuarine health that have been selected for their capacity to help us understand the dynamics and conditions of our estuaries. Explore the report below for more information about each of these indicators and how collectively they provide an assessment of estuarine health for our region.
