Abstract/ Summary

As large, charismatic species, lobsters of all stripes often find themselves at the center of scientific research and in the media spotlight. Lobster fisheries are important economic drivers of coastal communities around the world. Indeed, lobsters are poster children of a marine environment increasingly under the pressures of human exploitation and environmental change. The 200+ abstracts in this program reflect the activity of a vibrant international community of researchers and industry members striving to understand what makes lobsters tick and keep their fisheries sustainable.
