Based on the Monthly Marine Products Report of the total finfish and shellfish bay and Gulf of Mexico landings combined decreased 986,900 lb but increased $38,752,400 in value from 1977 to 1981. Brown shrimp (Penaeus aztecus), pink shrimp (P. duorarum) and white shrimp (P. setiferus) constituted 85-91% of all shellfish landings in each year. Red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus), and black drum (Pogonias cromis) constituted 71-73% of all finfish landings in each year. From 1977 to 1981 landings of brown and pink shrimp increased 6,596,500 lb; landings of white shrimp decreased 3,259,700 lb; landings of red drum decreased 337,500 lb; landings of spotted seatrout decreased 701,000 lb; and, landings of black drum decreased 789,700 lb. From 1977 to 1981 the mean price/lb paid the commercial fisherman increased for all species except for other shrimp price which decreased $0.81/lb. Finfish prices increased by $0.01/lb to $0.67/lb and shellfish prices increased by $0.02/lb to $0.53/lb.en_US
