Third straight D+ for the Chesapeake Bay


Scientists at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation graded the estuary’s health at a D+ for the third time in a row, with the blue crab population under duress and a multi-state cleanup pact poised to be deferred past its original 2025 deadline.

This year, foundation scientists scored the bay 32 out of 100, based on the status of key bay fisheries and habitats and pollution levels.
