The Life of a Baby Lobster

Join us to explore the habitat choices made by the secretive early juvenile western rock lobster.

The western rock lobster fishery is one of the most valuable in Australia. Currently there is a knowledge gap regarding the early life stages of these lobsters after they have settled onto nearshore reefs. Researchers are investigating the habitat choices that these lobsters are making during this highly vulnerable and secretive stage.
