Personals "This crop year is going to manifest itself through May of next year, a full year of dilemma for fishermen up and down the Texas coast," said Mike Haby, a Texas A&M seafood marketing specialist. He told The Houston Post the shrimp season begins in May for the new crop, when shrimp are large enough to harvest. Texas shrimpers landed 7.8 mil lion pounds of shrimp in July, the latest month for which data is available, preliminary information shows. That compares with 14.8 million pounds in July 1991, and 13.4 million pounds in July 1990. When compared with an 11- year average for the monthVjf July that dates to 1981, the July 1992 harvest is down 42 percent, offi cials said. "This year, we're holding our breath and hoping for the best," said Jim Sagnes of the Texas Shrimp Association. Much of the decline can be at tributed to this year's persistent, heavy rains that have flooded coastal shrimp nursery grounds with fresh water, said Margo Hightower, a researcher for the National Marine Fisheries Service. For five weeks this spring, Co- pano Bay near Corpus Christi was completely fresh because of runoff down the Mission and Arkansas chance to grow in offshore watc therefore becoming more valiil able. The closure is enforced to I 200-mile U.ijS. territorial limit. ^There is no reason to think tl rivers. "This is the lowest July figure I've seen since 1981, and 1981 is the year we started the Texas clo sure," said Hightower. Prohibited by the closure is shrimp production in the Gulf of Mexico off the Texas coast be tween mid-May and mid-June so that smaller shrimp have a better season is going to improve," Hightower. Experts said Hurricane An drew's impact on the shrimping season is uncertain Louisiana marine biologists hai reported massive fish kills, will an estimated 7 million saltwate fish washing up on shore. Prices to Texas shrimpers af pear to be somewhat higher tltf last year because of the poor to vest. Among processors, Iasi year's average July price paid It shrimpers was $3.17 per pound. For consumers, the harvest shortfall may not have that mud immediate impact. About 70 cent of the shrimp eaten in United States is imported fromi most all tropical and subtropical coastal countries. "Just because Texas shrimpec are having a bad year it doesiit mean retail prices are going through the roof," said Haby.

Factory workers fear free trade pad THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Phone your classified ad in Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. & charge it... What could be simpler? The Battalion Classifieds 845-0569 ARLINGTON — J.R. Flores earns $16 an hour on an assembly line at the Arlington General Motors plant. Ten miles south of the Texas border, Raquel Herrera earns $55 a week assembling parts for GM cars at a plant in Reynosa, Mexico. The significance of that disparity isn't lost on Flo res, who fears he could lose his job if a proposed North American Free Trade Agreement is approved. The uneasy feeling isn't new to the 31-year-old Flores. He's been through major layoffs three times in his 12 years, including an 18-month layoff in 1985 when GM shifted production of the El Camino to a plant in Mexico, where the company pays lower wages and faces fewer regulations. "When we lost the El Camino, the price of the car didn't drop," Flores told the Fort Worth Star- Telegram in Sunday's editions. "The money just went right into their profits." Herrera, 20, like about 500,000 other Mexicans working in about 2,000 U.S.-owned plants theft works for a paltry salary by American standards The GM subsidiary where she works, Delnosa, Si de C.V., makes anti-lock brakes. There would likely be thousands more suchjobsii the free trade pact is approved. Although Herrera and other workers complain about the wages, most revel in the chance to work in an orderly, air-conditioned factory. "I like the people," she said. "No one ever mad at me. When I work as a maid, you would nev er know. The lady would be mad or the children." GM corporate spokesman James Crellin in Detroit did not immediately return a telephone call from The Associated Press Sunday. William B. Hargraves, managing director of the Mexican plant, said the company offers workers some of the best jobs in the country.
