dc.description.abstractThe objectives are: 1.) Assess annually the status of finfish, shrimp, crab and oyster populations and associated environmental variables in the coastal waters; 2.) seek the best scientific information and approaches available in making management assessments of the fishery by consulting the scientific literature, other resource management agencies, resource users and by publishing and presenting resuts of scientific studies; 3.) prepare long-range management plans which determine optimum yield for brown shrimp, white shrimp, blue crab, red drum, spotted seatrout, southern flounder and black drum to provide maximum economic benefits to the fishermen while protecting the resource; 4.) enhance existing fishery populations by stocking red drum, spotted seatrout, striped bass, snook, tarpon and white shrimp in Texas bays and assessing the impacts of stocking on present populations and existing fisheries; 5.) enhance fishery habitat and economic benefits by revitalizing 500 acres of reefs; 6.) determine annually the demand for, utilization of and economic value of fishery resources, and the motivations, management attitudes and satisfaction of resource users; 7.) inform fishermen and consumers on seafood utilization to the maximum extent possible through improved communication with users of the resources; 8.) prepare fishery management plans and manage coastal resources through participation in the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and other entities; 9.) develop mariculture techniques for the commercial production of black drum and spotted seatrout, and provide information to the commercial mariculturist in Texas; 10.) prepare an artificial reef management plan to provide for orderly and effective use of this management tool to ensure maximum economic benefit and fisheries enhancement for the State of Texas.en_US
