Spiny lobsters are among the world's most valuable and highly
prized seafoods, captured and marketed in over 90 countries. Demand
for spiny lobsters has escalated in the past two decades, spurring
the need both for better management and for research on which to
base that management.
Spiny lobster aquaculture, however, now appears to be a real
possibility, some countries have already approved the legislation,
and it may be only a few years before this becomes the major
source. The book opens with a brief review of the general biology,
distribution, fishing techniques etc. but the major emphasis is on
the latest management strategies, developments in aquaculture,
marketing and economics. A special feature of the book will be
detailed reviews of the spiny lobster fishery, research activities
and marketing process in Japan, where customers are willing to pay
more than US$50 per pound for live lobsters.
