Further research is needed to build better models of behaviour and distribution of the planktonic stages, to provide for ultimately a better understanding between the abundance and distribution of breeding biomass and the eventual recruitment of mature lobsters into the fishery that have survived the planktonic phase. This is a central and substantial Lobsters as Part of Marine Ecosystems – A Review uncertainty that plagues lobster fishery management at all levels. The continuing studies on the environment and recruitment of P.

Many of the issues identified by Ward et al. (2002), Pitcher et al. (2009) and Rice (2011) remain to be substantively addressed in lobster fisheries. This includes issues such as the intense harvest of new recruits, where high fishing mortality rates are annually applied, apparently leaving only very limited biomass to grow through to the older age classes, the extent of which is considered by Ward et al. (2002) and Rice (2011) to be an important indicator of the success of the EBM approach. The western rock lobster fishery for P.

The significant recent reductions in fishing effort to protect the level of breeding stock will also have reduced these risks even further. , 2006, 2007). Frank and co-workers observed that increases in the abundance of mid-level consumers such as forage fish and crustaceans responding to relaxation in levels of predation has been most evident in simpler, less diverse ecosystems where fewer unexploited predator species can play the functional role of those removed. While there have been some limited modelling studies in the Western Australian situation, and 20 species have been identified as known or potential predators on lobsters, there have been no studies of the effects of predator removal directly affecting abundance of P.
