Long-term trends in the combined monthly shrimp landings in the Gulf of Mexico states

monthly-commercial-shrimp-landings-pounds-gulfSource of raw data: NOAA Fisheries.

It seems that the combined Gulf states commercial shrimp landings during peak months are declining over time. Monthly shrimp landings during peak month in early 2000s were over 25,000,000 pounds (headless). There were pronounced dips in monthly landings in 2005-2006, 2008-2009, and 2010-2011. Hurricane Katrina caused massive damages in the commercial fleet in summer of 2005. Hurricanes Gustav and Ike also devastated the region in 2008.  The U.S. economy was in deep financial turmoil and prolonged recession in 2008 to 2009. And lately, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 shut down the Gulf fisheries for sometime. Coastal restoration efforts are ongoing to restore the Gulf to its pristine conditions. Gulf Coast households and communities are also struggling to recover from the massive devastations caused by these recent natural and economic disasters.
