The Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine System (APES) is the second largest estuary in the continental U.S. comprising 3,000 square miles of open water and a wide variety of physical and chemical characteristics. These characteristics allow for a highly diverse community composition, but also make APES a favorable host for the settlement and propagation of invasive species. In an effort to gain information regarding the invasive species already existing in APES, the Albemarle-Pamlico National Estuary Partnership would like to conduct an annual rapid assessment survey of the estuary. This rapid assessment protocol outlines suggested sampling sites within brackish and saline areas of the estuary for fouling, intertidal and benthic habitats. In addition, a directory of potential samplers, field forms, a sample database, and a trip budget were developed as part of this protocol.
