Panulirus guttatus Assessment

Fishery assessment of the Panulirus guttatus fishery in Anguilla, using data collected as part of an MSc project, and incorporated with new data collected to produce breeding seasonality, size and maturity and catchability estimates, together with the first ever description of this fishery in Anguilla. This is one of only a small number of research projects for this locally important fisheries species that investigates potential management frameworks, and as such contributes important information to this otherwise under-studied species.
