The purpose of the report was to evaluate and quantify the non-fishing human induced mortality on fisheries resources in Galveston Bay. The specific objectives of the study were: (1) to collect and summarize existing information regarding authorized water intake structures in Galveston Bay; (2) to collect and summarize existing information regarding impacts to estuarine species from other non-fishing human activities such as dredge and fill operations, seismic exploration, pipeline construction and removal, and oil and gas exploration/production activities; (3) to quantify the magnitude of mortality to species by major taxa, size ranges, seasons, and areas within the Galveston Bay system; and (4) to present any implications of mortality patterns as they affect fisheries population dynamics in Galveston Bay.
