White shrimp use bays
during late spring, summer, and fall support a large fisher in bays
along the upper coast and near-shore water off the Gulf Beaches.
They stay in bays longer and reach a larger size than brown shrimp
and go to the Gulf as bays cool in the early fall. Identification
of Gulf White shrimp (Penaeus setiferus) will have on line
(or ridge) on the top of the shell.
Brown Shrimp, harvested in
coastal bays and at night in the Gulf, account for 80 percent of
the Texas catch. The young shrimp use the bays during the spring,
and begin entering the Gulf late May or early June. If growth is
fast they may leave the bays earlier, this sometimes occurs after
a warm winter. For identification purposes the Gulf Brown
Shrimp (Penaaeus aztecus), there are three ridges along
the back but the outer two ridges are bowed.
