Reduction - alteration of living resources
(Galveston Bay National Estuary Program, 1990)
This article is about the reduction and alteration of living resources with an emphasis on habitat, salinity, and water quality and circulation.
A net for sampling the intertidal zone of an estuary
Our problem was to develop a net for estimating relative abundance of postlarval brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus) and white shrimp (P. setiferus) in the intertidal zone of Galveston Bay. This zone includes marsh, beach, tidal ...
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 ...
The role of estuarine habitats in regulating growth and survival of juvenile penaeid shrimp.
(Elsevier Science Publishing Company, Incorporated, 1991)
Modifications of estuarine habitats are inevitable, but information on habitat functions can be used to protect those habitats most valuable to fishery species. Density patterns of young brown shrimp in estuaries reflect ...

Baseline and monitoring methods for sea grass meadows
Sea grasses in populated areas of Australia are in danger. Proper management is necessary to protect these areas, and the government is being asked to help. Aerial surveys and remote sensing are being used to measure ...
Habitat linkages: the effect of intertidal salt marshes and adjacent subtidal habitats on abundance, movement, and growth of an estuarine fish
Correlations in intertidal salt marshes and adjacent subtidal habitats were examined using pinfish in field experiments. This article presents the observations of this study. Pinfish were twice as abundant in intertidal ...
