  • Description:
    The value of commercial shrimp landings for 1971 in the state of Texas was $63.9 million. In the three coastal regions of Brownsville- Aransas, Port Lavaca-Galveston and Beaumont-Port Arthur in 1971 this value was $37.6, $23.6 and $2.7 million, respectively. These commercial shrimp landings have a significant impact on the economy of Texas and on the economies of the three coastal regions. The estimated direct, indirect and induced impact of 1971 commercial shrimp landings on the Texas economy was $197.2 million in output; $56.8 million in personal incomes; and 6,083 persons employed. Within the Brownsville-Aransas region, the $37.6 million landings by the commercial shrimp industry stimulated total economic output of $92.5 million. The $23.6 million landings by the commercial shrimp industry within the Port Lavaca-Galveston region stimulated total economic output of $55.9 million. Total economic output of $8.5 million was stimulated by the $2.7 million landings by the commercial shrimp industry within the Beaumont-Port Arthur region.
