In , 80 percent of the shrimp caught in the U.S. came out of the Gulf. Tropical shrimp trawling has one of the highest bycatch rates of all fishing techniques and often damages the ocean´s seafloor. Large trawl nets dragged along the sea bottom scoop up everything in their path. Species caught include marine turtles, juvenile fish, small whales, dolphins, porpoises, dugongs, sharks, seahorses, seabirds, sea snakes, corals and other invertebrates such as crabs. Texas coastal waterbodies (freshwater and tidal streams, s, estuaries and coastal bays) reservoir where nonpoint sources of nutrients are potentially causing chronic water quality impacts. The data sources used to develop the initial evaluation criteria include the following.

Brown shrimp are harvested in coastal bays and in the Gulf and account for over 80 percent of the Texas catch. White shrimp are also caught in the bays, but are more common in bays along the upper coast, where there is adequate freshwater inflow.

component of the Texas shrimp fishery has both economic and ecologic consequences. Recognition of this potential problem provided the impetus for this comprehensive characterization of the bay shrimp fishery, with a focus on the bays of the Coastal Bend (Aransas Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, and upper Laguna Madre).

This synthesis will provide: 1). level management practice, poverty issues, integration of shrimp aquaculture into coastal area management, shrimp health management and policy and legal issues.
