Growth and Emigration of White Shrimp, Litopenaeus vannanei, in the Mar Muerto Lagoon, Southern Mexico
C.E. Medina-Reyna

Microcohorts of white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, were sampled with a cast net at fortnightly intervals in the Mar Muerto Lagoon, Southern Mexico. Shrimp recruited to the lagoon throughout the sampling period (January to August 1993). Mean growth rates of microcohorts ranged from 0.21 to 1.21 mm total length (TL) per day. Juvenile shrimp mainly between the sizes of 70 to 80 mm TL emigrated from the lagoon. Growth and the onset of emigration appeared to be related to water salinity.

A Database for the Industrial Trawl Fishery of Côte d'Ivoire
F. Menard, J.Hoëpffner, V. Nordström, T. Joanny and J. Konan

Fishery statistics for the industrial trawl fishery of Côte d’Ivoire have been well documented since 1968. However, data processing has changed significantly with time and some of the data files have been lost. In 1997, the Centre de Recherches Océanologiques d’Abidjan decided to retrieve and process all trawl data available from different sources. This paper gives an overview of the database covering the period 1968 to 1997 and describes its coverage, format, structure and use. The database was developed using MS ACCESS® and is a powerful tool for storing information about this fishery, and for analysis of its dynamics over a period of 30 years.
