Commercial Shrimp Fishery

These bulletins present the economic impacts of the shrimp fishery on the Texas economy at the state and local level. Due to high variability in dockside harvest value, economic impacts were estimated using 10 years of landings data for three scenarios: a good year, an average year, and a poor year. Estimates are generated for labor income, value-added, output, and jobs created due to the shrimp fishery.
