The project will produce three papers related to growth of translocated rock lobsters. These are not critical for current operations which are locked in for a three year period. However they may be important for addressing industry concerns when the operations are next voted on in 2016. Aside from that need they maximise the benefit from investments into research on translocation of rock lobsters over the last decade.
Paper 1. Growth compensation in lobsters moved inshore
Paper 2. Density dependent changes in lobster growth
Paper 3. Fine scale variation in growth off western Tasmania
