TPWD Assesses Commercial Impacts from Hurricane Harvey

TEXAS –The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA Fisheries) created a new website to help assess the commercial impacts on fishing-related businesses from Hurricane Harvey.

The website, www.HarveyImpactTexas.com, allows commercial fishermen, charter-for-hire staff, wholesale dealers as well as marina and licensed pier facilitators to voluntarily fill out a survey assessing the hurricane related damages to their businesses.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, NOAA Fisheries contacted commercial businesses via in person interviews, email and phone to gather information regarding specific impacts to local businesses. The answers from these interviews and from the online survey will be used to accurately assess the damages to fishing-related businesses on the Texas coast.

TPWD and NOAA Fisheries ask any fishing-related businesses to take the survey online at www.HarveyImpactTexas.com to help accurately portray the total impacts from Hurricane Harvey.
