Nephrops species

Abstract

Nephrops norvegicus (L.) is widely distributed in the north-east Atlantic and Mediterranean. The species forms burrows in muddy sediments and is found wherever conditions are suitable. Important fisheries for Nephrops have developed since the 1950s, and it is now one the most valuable demersal species in the north-east Atlantic. Research into the biology of Nephrops dates back over at least a century, and this chapter reviews the current state of knowledge of its biology, ecology and fisheries. The chapter also reviews research into the biology of similar Metanephrops species that are also becoming the focus of important fisheries in New Zealand, Australia and elsewhere.
