Abstract

Data resulting from a full year's intensive biological and hydrological sampling in the Galveston estuary have been tabulated but their analysis and interpretation will continue for some time. Briefly, however, the overall pattern of seasonal distribution and abundance of major species has been established, as has their relationship to the physical environment in terms of the kind of ecological zone they typically occupy during their stay in the estuary. Annual salinity regimes and temperature cycles have been largely defined.
