Commercial Pink Shrimp Landings

Click on images to see larger

Pink Shrimp landings

Like many short lived crustaceans, populations are widely variable and cyclical therefore so is catch. Landings in 2005 were 15 million pounds and have averaged 26 million pounds per year over the last 31 years.

Shrimping AreasShrimping areas

Pink shrimp are generally fished at depths of 75 to 125 fathoms (450 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 areal extent of shrimp grounds (1984) and the lighter shaded areas show the largest areal extent observed from 1980-96.
