Sharp Dip in Louisiana's Shrimp Landings Drags Down Total Gulf Catch 6.5% in 2015
A significant drop in Louisiana's 2015 shrimp landings contributed to a 6.5 percent annual decline in Gulf shrimp production from 2014 levels.
Total landings in December were 8.4 million pounds. The figure was down 3 percent from December 2014 but up 2 percent compared to the five-year average for the month.
The monthly figure capped a year that saw Gulf shrimp landings in 2015 trend below both 2014 levels and five-year averages for much of the year.
