The shoreline around the Perry Bass Marine Fisheries Research Station can be good for trout and redfish from early spring to early fall.

This area is good for wade fishing and is accessible by road. Wade fishing can be very rewarding but can also can be dangerous for the inexperienced angler. Watch out for holes, drop-offs, soft bottoms, oyster shells and stingrays.

The Science staff at the Perry Bass Marine Fisheries Research Station is divided into two groups, the genetics staff and the life history staff. The genetics group utilizes genetic markers for species identification and to analyze genetic variability and population subdivision within marine species of interest. The life history group examines age and growth and reproductive characteristics of marine fish. Together, the two groups function to provide specialized information about marine fish stocks needed to manage Texas’ marine resources effectively.

The station also operates a red drum production facility that has produced millions of red drum fingerlings for stocking.
