The oligohaline zone has very little salt.
Salinity varies from cor. The north end of the oligohaline zone is north Old fashioned looking for Chesapeake first and the south end is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The mesohaline zone has a medium amount of salt and runs from the Bay Bridge to the mouth of the Rappahannock River. Salinity there ranges from The polyhaline zone is the saltiest zone, and some of the water can be as salty as sea water.
It runs from the mouth of the Rappahannock River to the mouth of the Bay.

Baltimore, in the northern portion of girst Bay, experiences a noticeable modulation to form its mixed tidal nature during spring vs.
Spring tides, when the sun-earth-moon system forms a line, cause the largest tidal amplitudes during lunar monthly tidal variations. In contrast, neap tides, when the sun-earth-moon system forms a right angle, are muted, and in a semi-diurnal tidal system such as that seen at the CBBT site this can be seen as a lowest intertidal range.
Two interesting points Chesapeke arise from comparing these two sites at opposite ends of the Bay are their tidal characteristics - semi-diurnal tide for CBBT and mixed tide for Baltimore due to resonance in the Bay - and the differences in amplitude fashioend to dissipation in the Bay.

The Chesapeake Bay Program is using oysters to reduce the amount of nitrogen compounds entering the Chesapeake Bay.

Today the Bay's dead zones are estimated to kill 75, tons of bottom-dwelling clams and worms each year, weakening the base of the estuary's food chain and robbing the blue crab in particular of a primary food source.
