The purpose of the project was to examine the literature and existing data to determine the magnitude and composition of the recreational finfish and shellfish by-catch in the Galveston Bay system. A preliminary estimate of the recreational by-catch of sport-boat fishermen was made using a combination of data obtained from the National Marine Fisheries Service's (NMFS) Marine Recreational Fishery Statistics Survey (MRFSS) and routine sport-boat harvest monitoring data provided by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). Data from the MRFSSs included landings of finfishes, determined to species by NMFS contractors, and by-catch data (numbers and disposition by species) based on fishermen recall during intercept surveys.
