  • Description:
    "This annotated bibliography was initially developed from literature related to the economics and biology of the Gulf of Mexico and south Atlantic shrimp fisheries. In the process of assembling this information, it became apparent that much of the research done for other fisheries and in other fields of economics had relevance to the economic and biological problems in the shrimp fishery. For example, an analysis to address the policy implications of bycatch discards in the Gulf of Mexico shrimp fishery would draw on research done by fishery biologists, descriptions and analyses of the problem in other fisheries around the world, and the economic analysis of air and water pollution. As a result, the bibliography became much more extensive then originally planned. While not meant to be a comprehensive listing of all fisheries related economic and biological research, hopefully, it will serve as a useful reference for researchers attempting to analyze proposed fishery management regulations. The abstracts, where possible, were taken directly from the cited articles and books. An index of author names by subject has been included in this annotated bibliography that will be updated as new information becomes available. Individuals interested in having specific references included in future editions may do so by sending a copy of the article or text to the Southeast Regional Office in care of the editor. This information is also available on diskette for IBM compatible personal computers. I would like to extend my appreciation to the people who assisted in this project. I would like to acknowledge Richard Raulerson, Assistant Regional Director for Economics and Trade Analysis, Southeast Regional Office, National Marine Fisheries Service for his support of this project and whose idea it was to assemble and publish the information. Dr. John Vondruska provided the information on shrimp processing and situation and outlook reports for shrimp. The staff at the NOAA library in Silver Spring, Maryland tracked down most of the literature cited in the bibliography. Lastly, I appreciate the help of the authors who provided copies of contract reports, staff reports, and other "gray" literature that I could not find elsewhere"--Preface.
