Pelican Spit 1988-1997

Densities of nekton were measured in three created salt marshes to examine habitat development rate. All three marshes were created from dredged material from the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Patterns of utilization suggest that marshes may reach its maximum habitat support function for some organisms in less than one year. However, comparisons with natural marshes suggest that created marshes function at lower levels than natural marshes in terms of supporting production of commercially important fishery species.
