In conclusion, we found that climatological forcing has direct effects on estuarine flooding regimes and consequently affects inshore shrimp harvests in coastal Louisiana. Furthermore, the nonlinear relationship between shrimp catch and water level is a result of low-catch endpoints that often correspond to ENSO and La Nina events. -from Authors
