The diverse uses of the Galveston Estuary inevitably pose potential threats to the survival of many estuarine species. The purpose of this study was to assess the relative health of the Galveston Estuary by evaluating the status and trends of several selected endemic species in order to identify potential problems, as indicated by significant declines in abundance, and to investigate the probable causes of these declines.
