Survey of Commercially Important Shrimp in the Aransas-Copano Bay Area - Fisheries Investigations in the Aransas-Copano Bay Area


Six stations in Aransas, Mesquite, Copano and Mission Bays were sampled semi-monthly with other trawls and bar seines. Results indicate that shrimp were far lass abundant in 1961 than in 1960. Peaks of abundance occurred prior to maximum model size. Salinity was higher in 1961 than in 1960 and may have affected shrimp populations.
