Rangia Clam Investigations
The adopted environmental flow standards developed by the Guadalupe, San Antonio, Mission, and Aransas Rivers and Mission, Copano, Aransas, and San Antonio Bays Basin and Bay Stakeholder Committee (BBASC) relied on limited data about the location, reproduction and recruitment of Rangia clams for the spring months. This study developed maps of Rangia clam beds in Mission Lake, Guadalupe Bay and parts of Hynes and San Antonio Bay. Rangia clam growth rings were examined to establish correlations between growth and recruitment with environmental flow conditions.
