In 2017 San Antonio Bay Partnership began participating Texas Parks and Wildlife Abandoned Crab Trap Removal Program to help clean the bays of abandoned crab traps. SABP organized the efforts in and around the West Matagorda Bay shoreline, Powderhorn Lake, Espiritu Santo Bay and East San Antonio Bay. The success thus far is evident in the numbers! Read the yearly Crab Trap reports below for the details and success of these efforts.
Many, many thanks to all of those who came out to help. It’s a dirty job and we’re so thankful that so many folks want to help!
If you would like to join us this coming February to make our Texas Bays cleaner and healthier for humans & the animals which live and reproduce in this important estuary system, contact Allan Berger allanRberger@comcast.net
