Contents Notes
"In 1981, the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Plan (FMP) was implemented with the primary objective being to increase the yield of brown shrimp harvested from Texas coastal waters. Since then, various aspects of the Texas Closure management measure have been analyzed and reported on by scientists at the Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC). This report, presented to the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council in January 1991, contains the results and an overview of the effects of the 1990 Texas Closure. Due to the concerns expressed by some members of the fishing community, special emphasis has been placed on providing answers to the numerous questions relating to the 200 mile versus the 15 mile closure options"--Introduction.
