Statewide Pacific ocean shrimp landings for 1973 are totaled and compared with the 1972 season. Landings by area are described in relation to poundage by month, catch per unit effort and fishing area. Sampling results reveal year class composition by numbers and weight of the catches by area. Sex composition for all areas and also size of the shrimp by month for Area A are computed. Results of hake stomach analysis reveal the possibility of a strong 1973 year class in Area A. The outlook for the 1974 season points out the need for strong recruitment from the 1973 year class to sustain the fishery in all areas. (12pp.)
