  • Description:
    "Christmas and Etzold (1977) and the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (GMFMC, 1980) have summarized much of the available information concerning the biology and population dynamics of brown shrimp in the context of management of the fishery for this species in the Gulf of Mexico. The size composition of the reported monthly catches of brown shrimp, penaeus aztecus, reflects the combined effects of recruitment, growth and mortality, including losses due to natural causes and those caused by fishing. Annually recurring recruitment has an obvious effect of reducing the size of brown shrimp in the monthly catches, but the time-phasing of open seasons and the intensity of fishing also can alter the size composition patterns (Caillouet and Koi, 1981 and 19837 Caillouet, Patella and Jackson, 1979 and 1980)"--Introduction.
