Lavaca Bay 1985-1987

Metadata Updated: April 21, 2022

Samples were collected from October 15, 1985 through June 12, 1987 in emergent marsh and non-vegetated habitats throughout the Lavaca Bay system to characterize usage of saline coastal and brackish deltaic habitats by estuarine aquatic species. Results suggest that short term lowering of salinity does not deter estuarine organisms from using deltaic marshes, but rather long term habitat changes may cause these responses
