13th Annual Texas Bays and Estuaries Meeting

13th Annual Texas Bays and Estuaries Meeting

On April 12th and 13th The University of Texas Marine Science Institute (UTMSI) and Mission-Aransas Reserve hosted the thirteenth annual Texas Bays and Estuaries Meeting. The meeting featured distinguished speakers, Drs. Wes Tunnell and Lisa Campbell, as well as presentations from over 100 researchers, students, and resource managers. Researchers from around Texas came together to learn from each other with the hope of generating a better understanding of our diverse coastal regions of Texas. The participants provided great presentations and posters that lent themselves to thought-provoking ideas and problem-solving solutions.
