Spiny lobster, Panulirus argus (Latreille, 1804), is the most valuable fishery resource in Cuba. Despite strong management, the population shows signs of decline. The objectives of the present study were to complete a literature review and to evaluate spiny lobster status, including illegal fishing. A statistical catch-at-age analysis, considering the addition of two environmental indices in the stock-recruitment relationship, was applied for two separate scenarios: one with official data (the "...

ABSTRACT Sexual maturity is an important phase of brachyuran's life cycle as it marks the transition of becoming an adult and the ability to reproduce. This article discussed on the types of sexual maturity found in brachyurans and the implication and application of size at the onset of sexual maturity (SOM) in general. In addition, data on the estimates of SOM of brachyurans were collected on a global scale for the period 1971鈥2015. The 220 maturity data were representative of 133 brachyuran st...

Small scale fisheries are critically important for the provision of food security, livelihoods, and economic development for billions of people. Yet, most of these fisheries appear to not be achieving either fisheries or conservation goals, with respect to creating healthier oceans that support more fish, feed more people and improve livelihoods. Research and practical experience have elucidated many insights into how to improve the performance of small-scale fisheries. Here, we present lessons ...

Summary The Caribbean spiny lobster, Panulirus argus , is one of the most valuable fisheries commodities in the Central American region, directly employing 50,000 people and generating >US$450 million per year [1]. This industry is particularly important to small island states such as The Bahamas, which exports more lobster than any other country in the region [1]. Several factors contribute to this disproportionally high productivity, principally the extensive shallow-water banks covered in sea...

Selectivity in fish is often size-dependent, which results in differential fishing mortality rates across fish of the same age, an effect known as "Lee鈥檚 Phenomenon". We extend previous work on using length composition to estimate the spawning potential ratio (SPR) for data-limited stocks by developing a computationally efficient length-structured per-recruit model that splits the population into a number of subcohorts, or growth-type-groups, to account for size-dependent fishing mortality rates...

Throughout the Wider Caribbean Region, the spotted spiny lobster, Panulirus guttatus (Latreille, 1804), dwells and forages exclusively in coral reef habitat after post-larval settlement, whereas its sympatric species, the Caribbean spiny lobster, Panulirus argus (Latreille, 1804), undergoes ontogenetic habitat shifts, with smaller individuals dwelling in reef lagoon habitats and larger individuals dwelling in reef habitats, but exhibiting broad foraging ranges. Stomach content, and carbon and ni...

In temperate habitats, predation by lobsters creates trophic cascades that reverberate through benthic communities. However, the influence of lobsters on tropical benthic communities is thought to be minimal due to higher prey diversity and the mobility and broad diet of lobsters. We hypothesized that this would not be the case for the spotted spiny lobster (Panulirus guttatus Latreille, 1804), an obligate, philopatric dweller of Caribbean coral reefs. Our study took place in the Florida Keys (U...
