“The only way you can do something like this is having this 30-year data set that’s unprecedented anywhere,” said Jim Tolan, a TPWD coastal fisheries ecologist who is authoring a paper on the warming trend. “We have just tons and tons of measurements — not just from one spot, but from all the bays in Texas.”
