About this book

Includes a brief review of biology, distribution and fishing techniques, with the major emphasis being placed on the latest management strategies, developments in aquaculture, marketing and economics.

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
