four themes of the 2015 symposium will progress through increasing
levels of organisation and complexity beginning with the Individual
Lobster, moving to the dynamics of Lobster Populations and then on to
Lobster Ecosystems and Food Webs. New to the 2015 symposium is a
special theme focusing on “The Business of Lobstering” where
presentations will examine how the lobster industry is adjusting to
varied aspects of its own changing economic, social, and cultural
Papers presented at the symposium can be submitted for consideration for publication in a special issue of Fisheries Research.
More details on the symposium will be announced in the coming months. Stay tuned!
