Earlier this year, CCA Texas approved $10,000 in funding to help with the first stage of water quality studies being completed in Baffin Bay. This effort is being coordinated by the Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program. Concerns have risen regarding the water quality of this bay system, Brown Tide alga and the condition of Black Drum in the bay system. CCA Texas volunteers from the Brush Country Chapter are also helping in these studies by taking part in the water sample collections and processing.
