Commercial Pink Shrimp Landings

 

Pink shrimp landings:

Pink shrimp live short lives and annual recruitment levels are linked to environmental conditions, primarily the strength, duration and timing of ocean currents, these two factors result in very high year to year varibility of landings. Landings in 2015 were at a near record high of 53 million pounds and have averaged 29 million pounds per year over the last 30 years.

Pink shrimping areas  
Pink shrimp are generally fished at depths of 40 to 125 fathoms (240 to 750 feet) in areas of soft substrate. Shaded areas of the map on the right show approximated commercial concentrations of pink shrimp stocks. These data are resultant of fishery logbook information. Dark areas show the approximate minimum aerial extent of shrimp grounds (1984) and the lighter shaded areas show the largest aerial extent observed from 1980-96.
