Seagrass restoration in the Galveston Bay Estuary
MetadataShow full item record
Sea grass restoration has been viewed as a method for offsetting losses from natural phenomena such as storms and from human impacts such as dredging and coastal development on Galveston Island. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has conducted and is now monitoring three sea grass restoration experiments that began in 1994 (Redfish Cove), 1999 (West Galveston Island), and 2000 (Galveston Island State Park). Results and lessons learned from each site will be presented.
