With his nets suspended and dragging in the Matagorda Bay Ship Channel, Harborth stands on the deck of a shrimping boat as another drags nearby. Bay shrimpers are decreasing because the ability to make substantial profits in the industry is in decline. Harborth said he and the remaining bay shrimpers out of Port Lavaca tend to help each other and have developed a special camaraderie.
