Shrimp and redfish studies. Bryan Mound brine disposal site off Freeport, Texas, 1979-1981. Volume II: Shrimp mark-release investigations.
Mark-release experiments were conducted from September to November 1979 during predischarge conditions, and May to July 1980 during brine discharge, to determine the effect of offshore disposal of brine from the Bryan Mound salt domes near Freeport, Texas on the survival and migration of brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus, and white shrimp, Penaeus setiferus. Vinyl streamer tags were used to mark the shrimp and 7,928 adult brown shrimp were release offshore in the vicinity of the brine diffuser.
