This report describes the results of a continuation of two work units conducted under the shrimp population studies in relation to the Bryan Mound brine disposal site. The work units supplemented the historical NMFS efforts for the construction of a Gulf-wide mark-recapture data set as well as the Government's Trip Interview Sampling Survey of shrimp catch and fishing effort. In addition, analyses were conducted on the 1978-1981 mark-release- recapture data set to determine rates and functions of growth, mortality and migration of white and brown shrimp.
