Oyster Survey for a Pipeline Route Across Galveston Bay, Texas

This map shows oyster reefs located by BEI during an oyster reef survey of a pipeline route across Galveston Bay. This survey was conducted using a poling survey method to locate oyster reefs. Poling allows for differentiation between fragmented shell or scattered shell substrate and oyster reefs, which is often not possible using remote sensing methods.
