Without a comprehensive understanding of nekton use of key habitats across locations, natural resource managers and restoration practitioners in the northern Gulf of Mexico region lack a key tool to assist in their efforts to design, implement, and monitor effective coastal restoration and protection efforts in the decades to come. To address this need, Abt helped conduct a systematic literature review, data compilation, and meta-analysis to evaluate nekton use of estuarine habitats in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
