2018 State of Our Estuaries
Every five years, PREP produces a State of Our Estuaries Report that examines environmental indicators of estuarine health, such as bacteria levels, nutrient concentrations, toxic contaminant levels, abundance of shellfish, and land use in the coastal watershed. By examining long-term data sets compiled from a variety of organizations, the report describes the current status of Southeastern New Hampshire and Southern Maine’s estuaries and suggests trends for the future. The report is designed to provide readers with an accurate understanding of environmental trends for the Great Bay and Hampton-Seabrook estuaries so that they may make informed land use and resource management decisions.
