The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) is celebrating more than 90 years as a national leader in fisheries, estuarine ecology, environmental chemistry and toxicology. Our scientists conduct research on the Chesapeake Bay and around the globe.
CBL invites the public to an Open House on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 1-5:00 p.m.
Located where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay, the CBL is the oldest publicly supported marine laboratory on the East Coast. Some 2016 highlights:
- Advising agencies on blue crab management to support the resurgence of blue crab in the Bay.
- Developing state of the art measurement/monitoring Bay health.
- Assessing the potential toxic effect of new and emerging compounds.
