In 1981, the Gulf of Mexico shrimp fishery management plan (FMP) was implemented with a primary objective being to increase the yield of brown shrimp harvested from Texas offshore waters. Since then, various aspects of the Texas closure management measure have been analyzed and reported on by scientists at the southeast fisheries science center (SEFSC). This report contains an overview of selected effects of the 1995 Texas closure and will be presented to the Gulf of Mexico fishery management council (GMFMC) in January 1996.
