  • Description:
    "In an attempt to provide economic data which can be utilized in the development of effective management strategies for the marine fisheries within the southeastern United States, the Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC) of the National Marine Fisheries Service (MMFS) has prepared comprehensive inventories of available economic data on several commercially important species. This report extends this SEFC task by describing the economic data available on the shrimp fisheries within the southeast. This report, however, is not limited to only a description of the available data sources. It also provides references and brief descriptions of the important analytical research that has been done on these important commercial resources. Since the report primarily addresses the commercial fisheries, Penaeus aztecus, P. setiferus and P. duorarum are the only species discussed. This report follows the general outline used in other economic data base reports done by the SEFC. A list inventoring the available data is provided in Appendix A. This inventory is presented in outline form under the following general topics; dockside prices and landings, wholesale prices and quantity, retail prices and consumption, imports and exports, vessels, and management. The data inventory for shrimp is slightly different than previous data base reports because it does not contain examples of the data listed in the inventory. The reason for not including examples of the inventoried data is the volume and complexity of the date associated with the commercial shrimp fisheries. A fairly complete list of the literature relating to the data listed in the inventory is provided in Appendix B. This bibliography, however, is not limited to the literature referencing data on the shrimp fisheries; it also provides references to economic analyses which have been done on the shrimp resources in the southeast"--Introduction.
