The Chappy breach is closing fast. It has changed once again in just the last few weeks. Ron Domurat provided the information below:

"Here's what's left of the breach! From the Chappy side of Norton Point looking across to Katama the breach is only about 60 yards across. This is big difference even from two weeks ago. Closing fast?????

There is also a bar that is forming just east of what's left of the bathing beach parking lot. At low tide, that bar is only about ten yards off the beach!

The following is a summary given to the MVSA by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science on Mycobacteriosis in Striped Bass. There is also a link to the seminar and webinar at the end of this summary if anyone is interested.

Just wanted to give you an update as to the dollars raised so far for Myco research.  To date the amount is $6,140 from 55 donors. Future donations can be made at the link at the bottom of this page.

I also wanted to let you know that Dr. Vogelbein will be giving an After Hours lecture on February 23, 2012, at 7 p.m. titled “Is Mycobacteriosis killing Virginia’s striped bass?”

I know that the majority of the supporters for his research are from the northeast and they won’t be able to attend in person but they can join the lecture through a web link that will be set up during the lecture to ask questions.  The lecture will also be made available to view on our website after the lecture takes place.


Join VIMS professor Wolfgang Vogelbein for VIMS' After Hours lecture as he describes his team's study of mycobacteriosis and its affect on the Bay's rockfish populations. Register here.
