Abundance of juvenile shrimp.
MetadataShow full item record
To obtain a possible index of later abundance of adult shrimp, the monitoring of the passage of postlarval shrimp into Galveston Bay was begun November 1959. A station was established inside the entrance to Bolivar Roads near the south jetty on the sand flats. Results indicated a catch per effort for brown bait shrimp was 29.8, 18.3 and 30.4 for 1960, 1961 and 1962 respectively.
