Relative Distribution and Abundance of Northern shrimp
in the Northwestern Atlantic
Derived from the NEFSC Summer Bottom Trawl Surveys
This shows relative shrimp stock weight and location. Yellow circles indicate shrimp are present, larger circles indicate more shrimp, plus sign (+) indicates sampled area where no shrimp were found.
The information displayed here represents a timeseries collected consistently since 1985.
The Northeast's resource survey constitutes the world's longest and most comprehensive standardized measure of distribution and abundance trends in commercially harvested finfish.
