identified and quantified shrimp harvesting catch areas
frequented by the Texas Gulf shrimp fishing fleet; evaluated
recreational fishing success in the area of shrimp bycatch
discharge; and described the vertical distribution of
pelagic species feeding on the shrimp fleet bycatch discard.
The project attempted to reduce user conflict over the
bycatch issue between the commercial shrimp fleet and
recreational community. The researchers provided
an accurate summary of bycatch in areas of recreational
interest, and evaluated impacts of commercial shrimping
activities on species targeted by recreational fisherman.
