BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Shrimp season in Mississippi waters opened one week ago, and so far it's been tough going for fishermen.

Chris Lyons manages the dock at St. Michael's on Biloxi's Back Bay. He said the shrimp are small and prices are low so far this year. But the demand for fresh Gulf shrimp remains steady.

Aaron Baker runs a seafood business in Pearl. He's down on the coast every couple of days to buy fresh shrimp off the docks. His business is steady with plenty of customers wanting the Gulf shrimp at Poppy's Seafood.
