  • Description:
    "This study, designed to describe the mobility of shrimp vessels in the Texas fishery in 1981, will be used to develop guidelines for a complete analysis of the Gulf of Mexico shrimp fleet: its structure, behavior and mobility patterns. Specific objectives are to: 1) identify vessels fishing off Texas in 1981; 2) determine their mohi1ity patterns in the Gulf of Mexico; 3) determine seasonal fishing and port use patterns; 4) identify physical vessel characteristics according to mobility pattern; 5) determine vessel activity according to mobility pattern; 6) discover if relationships exist between vessel characteristics and activity; and 7) determine the suitability of available data bases for further studies of fleet structure and behavior"--Introduction.
