Item Identification

Title: Lobster Logbook
Status: Completed
Abstract:

The NWHI lobster trap fishery, which commenced in the mid-1970s, is a multispecies fishery and primarily targets the Hawaiian spiny lobster (Panuliris marginatus) and the common slipper lobster (Scyllarides squammosus). The ridgeback slipper lobster (S. haani) became a target species later in the fishery as the live market opened up. The green spiny lobster (P. penicillatus) and the chinese slipper lobster (Parribacus antarcticus) were incidental catches made in very low abundances. Fishery statistics during the early developmental phase of the fishery (1976-82), prior to the establishment of the Crustaceans FMP, are scant. Also, despite significant changes in trap configuration during the 1980s, information identifying the type of trap fished is not available. Octopus were one of the incidental catch species that were retained by some vessels.

The fishery started out as a frozen tail fishery. Towards the end of the fishery the vessels were returning with live spiny and slipper lobsters. Majority of the live lobsters were destined for non-US markets. The frozen tails were marketed world wide.

Purpose:

To provide fishery information for stock assessment and management purposes vessel captains have been required under Amendment 1 of the Crustaceans Fishery Management Plan (FMP) to submit a trip logbook with data on daily catch (in numbers), lobsters retained (landings), fishing effort (number of traps hauled), and area fished (bank).
