Abstract

Monofilament gill nets, 182.9-m long with separate 45.7-m sections of 7.6-, 10.2-, 12.7-, and 15.2-cm stretched mesh, were fished in Sabine Lake, Galveston, (including East and West bays), Matagorda, San Antonio, Aransas, Corpus Christi, Upper Laguna Madre, and Lower laguna Madre bay systems during November 1975 through March 1976. This report contains methods and results of the catch.
