  • The oyster reefs of Galveston Bay 

    Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Coastal Fisheries Branch (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Coastal Fisheries Branch, 1976)
    This collection of 9 maps depicts more than 100 oyster reefs in light grey upon a two-tone background differentiating land mass in white and water in blue. One base map of the area in the scale - 1:100,000 (based upon ...
  • Oyster research in Texas 

    Hofstetter, R.P. (University of Georgia, 1968)
    A general discussion of the Texas oyster situation is presented and includes summary description of oystering areas and potential, industry problems (fluctuation of harvest, pollution, shell dredging and diseases), and ...
  • Oyster shells as a raw material for chemical lime. 

    Nealey, J.B. (, 1931)
    The only plant using oyster shells as a raw material for producing chemical lime is described. The plant is located at Houston, Texas, and obtains oyster shells by dredging on the Gulf Coast. The principle problem is ...
  • Oyster Studies Along the Texas Coast, 1968 

    Hofstetter, Robert P. (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 1968)
    Oyster (Crassostrea virginica) studies showed death rates to be low in Aransas and Galveston Bays but relatively high in Matagorda Bay. Initial mortality in Matagorda Bay was associated with freshwater and siltation but ...
  • Oyster studies along the Texas coast. 

    Hofstetter, Robert P. (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 1967)
    Oyster mortalities in Galveston, San Antonio, Aransas and South Bays were monitored through tray stations. Peak death rates among oyster stocks occurred during the spring in Aransas and South Bays, late summer in San ...
  • Oyster Studies, 1969 

    Hofstetter, Robert P. (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 1969-70)
    Oyster sampling was conducted in Galveston Bay, Texas. Monitoring of 1965, 1966, and 1967 year class oysters at two tray stations indicated a relatively low annual mortality rate of under 20%. Peak death rates, associated ...
  • Oyster Studies, 1970 

    Hofstetter, Robert P. (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, 1969-70)
    Annual death rates among one to five year-old oyster stocks at tray stations in Galveston Bay ranged from 24 to 45%, representing an increase in mortality among the older stocks over that recorded in the previous year and ...
  • Oysters as biomonitors of butyltins in the Gulf of Mexico. 

    Wade, T.L.; Garcia-Romero, B.; Brooks, J.M. (, 1991)
    The concentration of total butyltins and tributyltin in oysters has been measured at 59 Gulf of Mexico sites. The concentration has decreased at 85% of the sites after passage of the Organotin Paint Control Act. At 5% ...
  • Oysters as biomonitors of oil in the ocean. OTC 6529. 

    Wade, T.L.; Brooks, J.M.; Kennicutt, M.C., II; McDonald, T.J.; Denoux, G.J.; Jackson, T.J. (, 1991)
    Oysters collected from 70 Gulf of Mexico sites, removed from known point source inputs, contained low concentrations of toxic polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). The PAH concentration remained relatively constant at ...
  • Oysters as biomonitors of the apex barge oil spill 

    Wade, TL; Jackson, TJ; McDonald, TJ; Wilkinson, DL; Brooks, JM (, 2005)
    The collision of the Greek tanker ship Shinoussa resulted in a spill of an estimated 692,000 gallons of catalytic feed stock oil into Galveston Bay on July 28, 1990. Oysters were collected from Galveston Bay Todds Dump ...
  • Oysters as indicators of bioavailable butyltins in Galveston Bay, Texas 

    Wade, Terry L, Yaorong Qian, Jose L. Sericano, and David Wylie (Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission, 1999)
    Tributyltin (TBT), an active ingredient in antifouling paint, and its degradation products continue to be detected in the environment ten years after the use of TBT was regulated. TBT was an excellent choice to solve the ...

  • Ozone Precursors, Source Regions, and O sub(3) Formation during the TexAQS 2000 Study 

    Daum PH; Kleinman LI; Brechtel F; Lee YN; Nunnermacker LJ; Springston SR; Weinstein-Lloyd J (, 2002 191)
    sub() The DOE G-1 aircraft made flights on 14 days during the TexAQS 2000 study. On seven of those days, the aircraft encountered highly localized plumes exhibiting O sub(3) concentrations in excess of 150 ppb; on some ...
