The effects of a No-Take-Zone on crustacean population recovery in Lamlash Bay, Scotland., Christie B.

The Lamlash Bay NTZ protects the commercially fished European lobster, brown crab and velvet crab. These species were sampled using creel pots laid in the NTZ and less protected sites nearby. In the NTZ lobster and velvet crab catches were higher. Bigger lobsters were caught in the NTZ.
