The Delaware Bay

The water from the Upper Delaware River eventually makes its way down river where it mixes with the saltwater of the Delaware Bay. This lower river ecosystem is a spawning ground, nursery and migratory route for many different fish species.

Since 1991, the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife has done trawl surveys in the Delaware estuary. This survey was meant to compliment another study done by the State of Delaware's Division of Fish & Wildlife.

Both the NJ Delaware Survey and the Delaware Bay Assessment by the State of Delaware are worthwhile reading.
