These are the average landings and value of penaeid shrimp in ocean waters by county from 2006 - 2010 from shrimp trawls and skimmer trawls in North Carolina. Averages were calculated by dividing the total from 2006-2010 by the number of years each county had landings. Not all counties had landings in every year. Again be aware that counties are based on the dealer location and does not exactly reflect where the shrimp were harvested.
This GIS dataset was created for purpose of describing shrimp landings for the state of North Carolina so that these data can be considered with respect to other data on coastal resources and activities.
