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 Antonio Bay, and late spring in Galveston Bay. Mortality was severe in mid-coastal bays (Aransas and San Antonio) practically depleting the tray stocks. Spring mortality was moderate in South Bay, low in Galveston Bay.
