Research Papers


Lobster, crawfish, and crab fisheries. 
Click here to download the analysis of 2016 fishing activity returns for the lobster, crawfish and crab fishing permit.  

 

Natural England has been working in partnership with Cornwall CIFCA to implement an incidental bycatch monitoring program. The study has provided robust evidence of bycatch of both feature and non-feature species between 2013 and 2016. This work is essential and helped to define the future management of the fishery to ensure it is sustainable and causes no significant disturbance to, nor adverse effect on, the site integrity of the pSPA.
