2016 – Grant Awarded - £1000

The project will tag 2000 lobsters during the summer months of this year within the Baie Ny Carrickey closed area. The aim of the project is to establish their movements within the bay and any migratory trends beyond it. An understanding of emigration of lobsters outside the closed area is essential to evaluate local management measures within, such as increased minimum landing size. In addition, the data on tagged juvenile lobsters will be used to help optimise sampling methods for a juvenile recruitment index that will aid with forecasting population states within the closed area.
