A talk by Matthew Coleman.

This talk will present some of key outcomes of the Conservation, Reproduction, and Exploitation of the European Lobster (CREEL) project and how they fit into the vision of long-term sustainable lobster fisheries.

The European lobster is an iconic marine invertebrate with its fisheries an important socio-economic component of coastal and island fishing communities across Scotland and the broader North East Atlantic. Despite this, significant knowledge gaps exist in our understanding of the baseline biological processes that are required to underpin the long term sustainability of lobster fisheries. The CREEL project was designed to address a number of these key knowledge gaps at both a local and broader European level, using the Orkney lobster fishery as a case study.
