ABSTRACT THE Leslie and Delury equations were used with historical oyster catch per boat-day and harvest data to estimate the existing oyster population and resource exploitation rate in the Maryland portion of the Chesapeake Bay and tributaries. The area was divided into five regions and population estimates were obtained for each region. The 1975 population was estimated at about 10 million bushels and the exploitation rate of oysters over the total area averaged about 23 percent.
