South West Lobster Science Society Lobster Tagging Project
The Southwest Lobster Science Society (SWLSS) has launched a large-scale lobster tagging project that aims to provide a better understanding of the lobster stocks on which our local economies depend. The project objectives include: gathering data on lobster movement and growth; provide data on the health of lobster stocks; and monitoring the survivability of undersized lobsters when returned to the ocean by harvesters.
