This research effort proposes to develop comprehensive fishery-independent monitoring of the density, distribution, and growth of juvenile lobster and associated oceanographic conditions in Newfoundland waters. This monitoring program will enable robust projections of recruitment in the lobster fishery five to 10 years in advance, a time scale particularly relevant to fishery stakeholders.
