Gulf Shrimp System

Metadata Updated: July 16, 2021

Gulf of Mexico Shrimp Landings - This data set contains catch (landed catch) and effort for fishing trips made by the larger vessels that fish near and offshore for the various species of shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico. The data collection procedures for the catch/effort data for the large vessels consist of two parts. The landings statistics (i.e., quantity, value, etc.) are collected from the seafood dealers after the trips are unloaded whereas, the data on fishing effort (gear, fishing duration) and area are collected by interviews with the captain or crew while the trip is being unloaded.
