NEEDS YOU!

2014 HRI Redfish Tag Flyer 1 Updated

The Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation has surgically implanted several redfish with tracking technology as part of the Cedar Bayou study. Each of these fish is marked with a green external dart tag. Please release these fish if caught and call the phone number on the tag to let researchers know where you caught the fish and to add valuable movement information to their study!  If you decide to keep a tagged fish or if the fish dies in the process of being caught, please keep the black cylindrical acoustic tag implanted in the fish and call (361) 825-2028. This research is heavily dependent on the cooperation of local anglers, and your support is greatly appreciated! 

The Restoration of Cedar Bayou Completed

Iconic Pass Now Open After Years of Planning and Fundraising Efforts

Aransas County, Texas –Cedar Bayou and Vinson Slough were opened on September 25, 2014, after having been sealed in the 1970s and enduring decades of negative impacts from siltation and low water flows. Local media were invited to view the ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening last Thursday.

Cedar Bayou is a natural pass that separates San Jose Island from Matagorda Island. Dredging efforts date back to the 1930s, but partial efforts, siltation, and misplacement of spoil materials eventually led to the pass and adjacent Vinson Slough being sealed. The restoration of Cedar Bayou and Vinson Slough has created the vital connection from Mesquite and Aransas Bays to the Gulf of Mexico.
