Project start/end date: 10 Jan 1999 - 30 Jun 2000
1. To identify the current 'status of knowledge' in post-settlement spiny lobster research, including technological advances, which will be useful in study post-settlement process in southern rock lobster.
2. To bring together key industry, government and research partners to discuss a collaborative research plan aimed at investigating post settlement processes in southern rock lobster.
3. To foster international links in this field of research.
