From November 1953 to May 1958, collections of biological material by plankton net, cast net, and dip net were made in the vicinity of the mouth of East Lagoon, Galveston Island, with emphasis being placed on the seasonal occurrence and abundance of fishes. Results of these collections, coupled with visual observations, are presented and discussed. Thirty-five families of fishes were found to occur, dominated by the Clupeidae, Engraulidae, Sparidae, Sciaenidae, and Mugilidae. Concurrent water temperatures and salinities are presented in tabular form.
