WATCH: FlatsWorthy on The Second Chain of Islands – Please take 2 minutes to hear what they have to say!
“Second Chain of Islands is a little more difficult to track because it is so fragmented from the passage of time, years of harvest, and the forces of nature. It’s the frontline barrier reef in this natural baffle system which limits the flow of water from San Antonio and Espiritu Santo Bays through Ayers, Mesquite, Carlos, and ultimately into Aransas Bay. This once wonderful baffle was a contiguous structure that attenuated the wave action and currents, settling it down before it got to Ayers and Mesquite and across the other baffle reefs.”
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is accepting public comment for the proposal to prohibit oyster harvest from Carlos, Mesquite and Ayres Bays (Mesquite Bay Complex). CCA Texas SUPPORTS this proposal to conserve ecologically sensitive and unique oyster habitat for current and future generations.
Make YOUR VOICE HEARD by supporting the TPWD proposal! Here’s how YOU can help by the deadline at 5PM on Wednesday, November 2nd!
