Media reviews
While it is generally written for scientists by scientists, [Spiny Lobsters] is of much wider value than that. None of the papers are so complex that the lobster fisherman would find them too tedious or incomprehensible to read... A very valued contribution to the body of the knowledge on a very important fishery -- Fishing Boat World
