2012 Gulf Coast Blue Crab Fishery Landings

As promised, here are the fishery landings data for blue crabs in Gulf Coast states updated to the end of 2012. As on the Atlantic Coast, it is a bit of a mixed bag. Landings were up a bit in Mississippi and and Louisiana and down a bit most other places. Based just on these landings data, there doesn't appear to have been a major, lasting impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on blue crab fisheries.
