Abstract

Hydrographic and biological sampling stations were established on the Lower Rio Grande every four miles from the mouth upstream to Mile 28. These were sampled 15 times in 1969 and 1970. Hydrographic samples included water temperatures, pH, turbidity, surface and bottom salinities, and surface and bottom dissolved oxygen. Biological samples were taken principally with a 12-foot otter trawl. Results of sampling were tabulated and analyzed.
