A multiple census tagging program is being conducted on the Texas coast utilizing internal abdominal anchor tags. Features of this study include a simultaneous standardized random sampling scheme in eight bay systems and rewards for tag returns. Comparable data are obtained between bay systems for deriving estimates of fish growth, movement, fishing mortality and population size. Eleven major assumptions are attendant to the analyses of these data.
