Apparently nothing was learned from the demise of Tarpon (and Snook) from the mid coast of Texas. The Port of Corpus Christi, and the state of Texas, continue to dredge new deeper channels and reduce freshwater inflows to the bays – further altering habitat, hydrology, and salinities. It’s literally a “death by a thousand cuts”.
