The Biology and Fisheries of the Slipper Lobster

Written by international experts, The Biology and Fisheries of the Slipper Lobster provides comprehensive coverage of the known biology, ecology, behavior, physiology, evolutionary history, and genetics of the numerous species in the family history, and genetics of the numerous species in the family Scyllartida. It covers fishing methods and regulations, size and composition of catches, fisheries management, and distribution of those particular species that are targeted species or by-products of other fisheries. The book takes a comparative approach to understanding fisheries in different regions of the world and examines management plans that have failed and those that have succeeded.

The text includes an identification key for final stage phyllosomas and figures of phyllosomal characters that make identification at the genus or subfamily level easy. It also covers future needs of biological research, fisheries management strategies, and future directions.

Special Features:

Illustrations:

  • Figures of most of the species of slipper lobsters

  • Distribution maps

  • Photographs of rearing facilities

  • SEM photographs of the mouthparts and digestive system of scyllarids

Summary tables:

  • Species, extant and extinct, and life history of characters

  • Life history parameters of larvae, postlarvae (nistos), juveniles, and adults, and reproductive parameters of various species

  • Comparison of rearing attempts

  • Ecological parameters for various life stages

  • Sensory organs and appendages

  • Pre-and post-molt growth parameters of scyllarid species

Comparative tables provide:

  • A summary of genomic size and other genetic features of decapods, including information on several scyllarid species

  • Cations in the carapace of various dec
