Clean water is a no brainer when it comes to anything in life, including the ability to sustain life. Fishing or not, clean water is essential for everyone and everything . . . striped bass, bald eagles, osprey, otters, mayflies, and crayfish, just to name a few.
For those making a living on the water, clean water will ensure these professionals will be able to continue developing and producing recreational and educational programs for the public, who may be interested in buying fresh local fish, hiring fishing and ecotour guides, and traveling on the waters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Yeah, the need for clean water is a no brainer.
