Lobster Catch Study; Coastal New Hampshire and Estuary HabitatEntry ID: WEBCOAST_COOA_LOBSTER
Abstract: These lobster catch data were collected as part of research projects of Dr. Winsor Watson and his students in the Zoology Department at the University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH., USA. Data were collected from lobster traps set around the Great Bay, the Piscataqua River, and out to the Isles of Shoals in the Western Gulf of Maine. Data from individual traps were combined into monthly or annual ... values. Ongoing research projects include video-taping and tracking of lobsters in their natural habitat, toxicology studies, and studies of lobster neurobiology, physiology and behavior. For more information on these projects, including movies of lobster behavior, visit the lobsters home page (http://lobsters.unh.edu/).
