Sportsmans Road/Gangs Bayou 1995

Metadata Updated: February 8, 2018

Measured fine-scale distributions of nekton on the vegetated marsh surface using drop samplers and utilized these patterns to estimate population size. Natant decapod crustaceans were most abundant in the marsh, while densities of juvenile brown shrimp, white shrimp, and blue crabs were highest 1-m from the marsh edge interface, declining rapidly towards open water. Developed regression models to describe fine-scale density patterns and used this information to estimate the population of natant decapods in a highly fragmented marsh in the Galveston Bay system.
