Elemental composition of fish otoliths and contaminant levels along an estuarine pollution gradient
(, 2003 Sep 2)
The chemical composition of fish otoliths is receiving increasing attention as a potential indicator or fingerprint of the chemical composition of fish habitats. Central to this is the hypothesis that a temporal record of ...
Dermowatch: A new tool for managing Perkinsus marinus disease in Eastern Oysters, Crassostrea virginica
(, 2000 200)
A website called DermoWatch has been established (www.blueblee.com/dermo) to track the progression of Perkinsus marinus (= Dermocystidium marinum) in Galveston Bay and allow users from other locations to also calculate a ...

(Texas Coastal Management Program, 2000)
Tourism is one of the biggest businesses in Texas and coastal communities rely on their beaches and bays to attract tourists. As a result, ensuring public access to the shoreline is of central importance to coastal ...
Relative influence of habitat fragmentation and inundation on brown shrimp farfantepenaeus aztecus production in northern Gulf of Mexico salt marshes
We used a spatially explicit individual-based model to investigate the relative influences of inundation and habitat fragmentation on brown shrimp Farfantepenaeus aztecus production in northern Gulf of Mexico (NGOM) salt ...

Utilization of saltmarsh shorelines by newly settled sciaenids in a Texas estuary
Post-settlement patterns of habitat use along saltmarsh shorelines of Galveston Bay, Texas were examined for 3 sciaenids; spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus), red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), and Atlantic croaker ...
The dissolved organic iodine species of the isotopic ratio of super(129)I/super (127)I: A novel tool for tracing terrestrial organic matter in the estuarine surface waters of Galveston Bay, Texas
Variations in super(129)I/ super(127)I ratios were used to trace terrestrial organic carbon (tDOC) across an estuary because (1) iodine is biophilic, up to 75% of total iodine in fresh and coastal marine waters partitions ...

Growth of newly settled red drum Sciaenops ocellatus in different estuarine habitat types
We examined growth of recently settled juvenile red drum in salt marsh, seagrass, oyster reef, and on nonvegetated bottom areas in the Galveston Bay system of Texas (USA). We estimated growth using otolith microstructure ...
