In general, salinity was greatest in Lake Pontchartrain (mean = 18.9, SD = 2.5), Lake Calcasieu (mean = 16.2, SD = 4.2), Terrebonne Bay (mean = 14.1, SD = 3.4), Sabine Lake (mean = 12.2, SD = 6.1), and Barataria Bay (mean = 10.7, SD = 4.4) and was lowest in Breton Sound (mean = 6.5, SD = 2.6) and Vermilion Bay (mean = 4.4, SD = 2.5).
Two sites, Sabine Lake and northern Calcasieu Lake, have been closed to harvesting activities for more than 50 years, and they are the only substantial non-harvested subtidal oyster reefs in the state.
On the Texas/Louisiana border is Sabine Lake, where a vast oyster feel sits in something like 20-foot depths.
Sampling results indicated the presence of organic and inorganic contaminants buried in surface impoundments and contaminated soils adjacent to the shoreline of Sabine Lake.
For example, the Sabine River begins in North-Central Texas in Hunt, Rains and Van Zandt counties and flows southeasterly first to a large reservoir on the border with Louisiana, Toledo Bend Lake, then ends in Sabine Lake, an estuary of the Gulf of Mexico.
The topics include the response of Mobile Bay and eastern Mississippi Sound in Alabama to changes in sediment accommodation and accumulation; the interplay of eustasy, antecedent topography, and sediment supply variations at Sabine Lake in Texas and Louisiana; and mechanisms of environmental change in Corpus Christi Bay, Texas.
The Chenier Plain includes a series of high ridges (cheniers) that run roughly parallel to a relatively strait shoreline and extends from Vermilion Bay to the western boundary of Louisiana, Sabine Lake. Cheniers are former shore-side dunes that became isolated inland as the westward drift and subsequent deposition of sediment, largely from the Mississippi and Atchafalaya rivers, built new shorelines.
The Louisiana sample differed from most Texas samples, and within Texas most samples were genetically undifferentiated, except for samples Galveston Bay which were significantly different from those of all bays, except Sabine Lake and Corpus Christi.
The Sabine River arises in the eastern part of north-central Texas (Hunt, Collin, and Rockwall counties), flows southeastward through eastern Texas for approximately 890 km and terminates at Sabine Lake, an estuary of the Gulf of Mexico.
The oyster reef complex within Sabine Lake Estuary is the largest known in the United States with no record of commercial harvest, and it presents a unique opportunity to understand the habitat value of an unfished reef system in comparison with adjacent estuarine habitats.
Southern flounder were collected during the summers of 1996 and 1997 by rod and reel, flounder gigs, or Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPW) gill nets in four Texas bays (Sabine Lake, Galveston Bay, Matagorda Bay, and lower Laguna Madre), by pound nets in Core Sound, North Carolina, from gill nets in estuarine waters near Biloxi, Mississippi, and from commercial fish houses in Dauphin Island, Alabama, and St.
The drainage system, which starts out as a series of ditches and canals, drains agricultural and pasture lands and the southern and western portions of the City of Beaumont before joining Taylor Bayou, which historically flowed into Sabine Lake, but now flows into the Intercoastal Canal.
