  • Description:
    "The reported monthly catches of brown shrimp, Penaeus aztecus Ives, reflect recurring life cycle events and seasonal removals by inshore (landward of barrier islands) and offshore (seaward of barrier islands) fisheries (see Christmas and Etzold, 1977; and Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council, 1980). The seasonal timing of peaks and troughs in the catches may vary from year to year, dependinq upon climatic influences, recruitment, survival, and growth of shrimp, and market conditions, as well as changes in the timing and duration of open fishing seasons set by shrimp management agencies. Differences in such time-phasing of fishing activities exist among the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, as related to differences in regulations governing the time and area of fishing within territorial waters (GMFMC, 1980). Beginning in 1981, federal requlations promulgated as an outgrowth of the fishery management plan for the shrimp fishery of the Gulf of Mexico also affected the time-phasing of fishing for brown shrimp off the coast of Texas (GMFMC, 1980). From Mav 15 to August 22, 1981, the Fishery Conservation Zone (from the edge of the territorial sea out to 200 miles from the coastal baseline) off Texas was closed to shrimping for brown shrimp. This management measure was dubbed the "Texas Closure"--Introduction.
