Understanding of the structure and function of an estuarine ecosystem, such as Galveston Bay, may be enhanced by the simultaneous consideration of all of the nine major estuaries in Texas. These estuaries reflect the precipitation and temperature gradients and river outfalls along the coast. Phenology is the study of the temporal aspects of recurrent natural phenomena and their relation to weather and climate (Lincoln et al., 1998). The objective of this study is to examine the phenology of the utilization of Texas estuaries by the dominant commercial shrimp species.
