SEAMAP Real-time Plots for the year 2017
Below is the end of survey report for the 2017 SEAMAP Summer Shrimp/Groundfish Survey in the northern Gulf of Mexico. This report includes sampling from May 30 - July 19 by the Alabama vessel Alabama Discovery, Florida vessel Tommy Munro, the Louisiana vessel Point Sur, the Mississippi vessel Tommy Munro, and the NOAA vessel Oregon II. Catch data were taken with a 40-ft trawl.
Plotted catch rates have been converted to pounds per hour for a 40-ft trawl. Shrimp counts are heads-on. The squares on the charts are 10-minute grids. The number in each grid square is the average catch or count from all stations (may be one or more stations) that were sampled within a particular grid. The sampling stations were located randomly by depth zone.Back to 2017
