Chocolate Bay/Halls Lake 1987-1988

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

During May 1987, and May-June and September 1988, a total of 80 inner and outer marsh samples were collected in the Alligator Point salt marsh of Chocolate Bay within the Galveston Bay estuary system of Texas. The objective was to examine the relationship between marsh edge and nekton use in a planted Spartina marsh. Overall, the study indicates that habitat value of created salt marshes can be enhanced by incorporating tidal creeks into the marsh design.
