Abstract One of the priority problems identified by the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program is the abundance and impact of floating, submerged and shoreline debris on the Galveston Bay Estuary. The purpose of the study was to compile debris data to determine the magnitude and distribution of debris and to evaluate the possible sources and effects of these materials in the Galveston Estuary. Data for the study was collected between June 1, 1992 and September 30, 1992. Sample sites were selected randomly throughout the estuary so as not to bias the estimates of debris in the estuary. Shoreline sites sampled by volunteers were based on random bag seine sample locations done by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Coastal Fisheries monitoring program in 1991. In shoreline samples, citizens were asked to sample 100 feet of shoreline at a given location. All debris material located between the waters edge and the high tide mark for the site was counted and recorded.
