Texas Sea Grant and the Coastal Bend Bays & Estuaries Program have decided to postpone the Water Quality & Fisheries Workshop and the Green Infrastructure Workshop in response to the COVID-19 public health concern. We are closely following the outbreak and recommendations from the Center for Disease Control, Nueces County Health Department, Texas A&M University, and the City of Corpus Christi, and we will let you know when the Water Quality & Fisheries Workshop can be rescheduled as soon as possible.

Baffin Bay Early Phase Watershed Planning

Baffin Bay supports some of the highest recreational and commercial fishery landings in Texas. It also contains critical habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife and is surrounded by a thriving agricultural community. Current water quality impairments and degradation threaten its health and future.

An existing local Baffin Bay Stakeholder Group, consisting of fisherman, landowners, ranchers, business owners, local government, and agencies, would like to expand protection efforts. The development of a locally driven plan for voluntarily addressing issues through a unified approach provides an advantage when seeking funding for improvement projects. Please join us and share feedback on your vision for the future of Baffin Bay.

The project team can be contacted at ashmarie@tamu.edu or 979-324-5024.
