Abstract:

Recent pier construction activity in San Diego Bay necessitated an evaluation of its impact on the spiny lobster Panulirus interruptus. Lobster movements were monitored by placing standard commercial lobster traps at sixteen selected stations in San Diego Bay. Various data were recorded and lobsters were tagged and subsequently released. This report documents the findings of the study. Author
