Texas' long coastline and beaches on the Gulf of Mexico have drawn visitors and commerce since the state's very beginnings. In Marine Scientists, we will see the Gulf Coast through the eyes of marine researchers who are exploring the environmental health of this beautiful and vital area of our state. Today, over-fishing, reduced fresh water in-flow, and human encroachment are threatening the delicate balance of the Gulf's ecosystem. Find out what these scientists have discovered and the solutions they propose to preserve our coastline for generations to come.
