Economic Data Collection for Gulf of Mexico South Atlantic Shrimp Fisheries

The Annual Economic Survey of Federal Gulf and Atlantic Shrimp Permit Holders collects data about operating expenses and costs of owning and maintaining shrimp vessels. Each spring, surveys are sent by mail to a random sample of 33 of all vessels with federal permits for the harvest of Gulf of Mexico penaeid shrimp or South Atlantic penaeid or rock shrimp. This information is used to assess trends in the financial and economic state of the fisheries, and to determine the economic and social effects of regulations and other factors affecting the Southeast shrimp fisheries. The individual information is confidential and only summary statistics are released to the public.
