Assessing the validity of information provided by tagging studies
(Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Coastal Fisheries Branch, n.d.)
Studies performed by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) have found fish identification volunteered by recreational anglers to agree 96 percent of the time with identifications made by biologists. TPWD also found ...
Estimated survival rates for immature red drum in northwest Gulf of Mexico bays.
A mean annual survival rate of 15 +- 2 % (S.E.) was estimated for tagged red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) for the period November 1975-April 1979 in bays of the northwest Gulf of Mexico. Annual survival estimates were ...
Movement, growth, and survival of spotted seatrout tagged in Bastrop Bayou, Texas.
During February 1976-November 1981, 2040 spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus) were caught for tagging with hook and line at Bastrop Marina on Bastrop Bayou in the Galveston Bay system. The subsequent tag return rate was ...
Evaluation of the accuracy and precision of volunteered size data from tagged red drum returns.
The accuracy and precision of total lengths and weights from recaptured tagged red drum (Sciaenops ocellata) reported by Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) biologists, anglers, and commercial fishermen were compared. ...
A proposed approach for monitoring Texas commercial saltwater fisheries

A method for directly estimating the tag-reporting rate of anglers
Tag-reporting rates for marine recreational boat anglers were estimated directly by surreptitiously implanting, during routine creel surveys, fish tags into fish that had already been caught during October 1976-September ...
Effect of setting method on gill net catches
(Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Coastal Fisheries Branch, 1985)
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's finfish monitoring program involves setting gill nets with the smallest mesh (7.6 cm or 3 inches) always nearest shore. This study compares the number of fishes caught in each of ...
Comparison of two techniques for estimating tilefish, yellowedge grouper, and other deepwater fish populations.
Tilefish Lophopatilus chamaeleonticeps and yellowedge grouper Epinephelus flavolimbatus are deepwater fishes and targets of a relatively recent bottom longline fishery in th Gulf of Mexico. They are long-lived, slow ...
A temperature compensated von Bertalanffy growth model for tagged red drum and black drum in Texas bays.
Estimates of von Bertalanffy growth model (VBFM) parameters K and L were made for red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), and black drum (Pogonias cromis), tagged and recaptured in Texas bays from November 1975 through June 1985. ...
