San Antonio Bay Ecosystem Health Report Card

This Report Card by the Harte Research Institute uses local, state, and national datasets alongside stakeholder input to evaluate how current conditions compare to long-term trends. This is meant to give a high-level summary of the health of bay ecosystems to inform management decisions for the Texas coast. A healthy score represents a well-balanced system that supports current uses. A vulnerable score indicates that negative influences from human and natural pressures are being observed. An unhealthy score means that measured values are outside the range of what is expected in a balanced, healthy system.
