Title: Forecast For The 2018 Brown Shrimp Season In The Western Gulf Of Mexico From The Mississippi River To The U.S.–Mexico Border
Abstract:

Scientists at the National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA Fisheries) Southeast Fisheries Science Center's Galveston Laboratory forecast brown shrimp production from the western Gulf of Mexico for the upcoming year (July 2018–June 2019). The data for the forecast comes from the NOAA Fisheries Galveston Laboratory, NOAA port agents, National Climatic Data and Weather Centers, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the commercial shrimp industry. Pre-season estimates of juvenile brown shrimp abundance and growth are obtained by monitoring the inshore shrimp fisheries in Texas and the inshore and nearshore fisheries in Louisiana. Environmental variables are further assessed to quantify the amount and type of habitat available for growth and survival of young shrimp. Collectively, these measures provide an estimate of the size of shrimp stocks prior to their movement into the offshore fishery
