MetadataShow full item record
During October 1975-1982 Texas bays were stocked with over 56 million red drum eggs (8.5 million), fry (45.1 million), and fingerlings (2.8 million) to enhance existing populations. Most of the bays except the lower Laguna Madre were stocked in summer and fall 1975, 1979, and 1980. No fish were stocked into the lower Laguna Madre. About 49,000 fingerlings were tagged, most with magnetic nose tags.
