Habitat availability and utilization by benthos and nekton in Hall's Lake and West Galveston Bay
Barrier islands protect much of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) from the erosional wave energy of West Galveston Bay. In the area of Hall's Lake, these islands have been worn away, and a narrow isthmus of land ...
Watershed effects on the value of marshes to fisheries
(Publ by ASCE, New York, NY, USA, 1993)
Watershed size and rainfall patterns are among the factors that influence the extent to which fishery species use estuarine marshes as nurseries. We examined three Texas bays with different watershed characteristics to ...
Modeling Nekton Habitat Use in Galveston Bay, Texas. An Approach to Define Essential Fish Habitat (EFH)
The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act requires the identification of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) for Federally managed fishery species in our Nation's marine and estuarine environments. The intent ...
Relationships between sediment hydrocarbon concentration and salt marsh habitat use in Galveston Bay
(, 1999 199)
We sampled nekton, benthic infauna, and sediments in salt marsh habitats at ten locations in upper Galveston Bay, Texas to examine relationships between habitat use and sediment hydrocarbon concentration. Sample locations ...
