Bays and Estuaries. Texas bays and estuaries are some of the most biologically productive places in the marine environment. Most of the fish and invertebrate species people are familiar with spend large parts of their sub-adult periods in the sea grass areas or near the shorelines.

The EPA National Estuary Program (NEP) is a unique and voluntary program. established in under the Clean Water Act Amendments (CWA). A successful ecosystem-based management program, it works to restore and maintain the water quality and ecological integrity of estuaries of national significance.

Estuaries are also crucial for fish populations, with two thirds of all salmon that spawn in California rivers traveling through the S.F. Bay Estuary. So “Estuary Area” may not be as catchy and more of a tongue twister than “Bay Area,” but you’ll surprise others when you tell them the San Francisco Bay is actually not a classic “bay.

large bays and estuaries give way to smaller embayments where freshwater input is largely restricted to the winter months when rainfall is most prevalent (fig. These types of embayments have sometimes been referred to as “inter-mittent estuaries,” and those of central and southern California generally fall into this category.
