The Galveston Bay National Estuary Program is characterizing the status and trends in resource condition as a necessary step in formulating the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for the Galveston Bay system. An examination of the magnitude of recreational fishery by-catch, in concert with projects evaluating the magnitude of commercial shrimp trawl fishery by-catch and magnitude of other non-fishery-related moratlity will characterize the direct impacts of human removal of organisms from the estuarine environment. The purpose of this report is to present information on the recreational fishery by-catch in the Galveston Bay system.
