  • Description:
    "Penaeid shrimp mark and recapture studies in Louisiana, initiated in 1977, were continued through 1979 in cooperation with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) and Louisiana State University. Shrimp were tagged and released in Caillou Lake, Barataria Bay and offshore between Calcasieu Pass and Grand Isle. The major program objectives were designed to meet data needs identified as management priorities in the regional shrimp fishery management plan for the Gulf of Mexico (Christmas and Etzold, 1977). They included investigation of growth, mortality and movement patterns of offshore overwintering populations of white shrimp (Penaeus setiferus) and to expand inshore studies of brown shrimp (P. aztecus) in Louisiana's extensive and productive estuarine systems to include white shrimp. This report summarizes recovery data from shrimp marked and released in Louisiana waters during 1979. Individual recapture data, including distance travelled, days at large and change in length, are presented in Appendix I. Growth rate and mortality rate estimates are beyond the scope of this paper and will be reported elsewhere"--Introduction.
