The NOAA Mussel Watch program began in 1986 and is the longest running continuous contaminant monitoring program in the country. Concentrations of contaminants in bivalves and sediments are measured along coasts nationwide. Using an ecosystem-based management approach, the program integrates monitoring, assessment and research to describe the state of our nation's estuaries and coasts. More than 140 chemical contaminants (metals and organics) are monitored by the program. In the Albemarle- Pamlico Estuarine System, sampling of oysters takes place at John Creek , Wysocking Bay, Pungo River, Neuse River, Cape Hatteras, and Pivers Island.
