Abstract

The purpose of this study was to gather and assemble information that will provide a synthesis of seafood catch, distribution and consumption patterns for the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) region. The study is part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored project entitled “Environmental and Economic Assessment of Discharges from GOM Region Oil and Gas Operations.” Continental Shelf Associates was the prime contractor on the work.
