MetadataShow full item record
Terrestrial habitats associated with actual dike site and onshore spoil deposit sites were of minor importance. Consideration should be given to adjacent woodlands which provide good quality wildlife habitat. Site probably does not contribute to a significant proportion of the shrimp habitat in Galveston Bay complex. The dike would provide better habitat for blue crabs.
