In March of 2020, the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary PartnershipN.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, and The Pew Charitable Trusts, hosted a workshop in Raleigh, North Carolina, that brought together professionals from science, management, and conservation communities to discuss linkages between submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) and water quality. After learning about the current state of knowledge regarding water quality and SAV in the state’s estuaries throughout the morning, workshop attendees spent the afternoon in breakout groups identifying data gaps and management strategies that could be implemented in the near-term to facilitate SAV protection and restoration.
