The Galveston Bay National Estuary Program commissioned an investigation to characterize shrimp trawl bycatch in the Galveston Bay System. The characterization study, performed by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Galveston Laboratory, was conducted in three phases: (1) a review of historical bycatch studies, (2) initiation of new data collection efforts on commercial vessels, and (3) a comparison of new data collected with fishery independent surveys of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). Three historical studies regarding bycatch in Galveston Bay were identified and reviewed.
