Recent improved practices in the trawl fishery for Norway lobsters (Nephrops norvegicus) have made it\ud possible to increase the proportion of trawl-caught lobsters that can be transported alive successfully.\ud A major contributor to this has been the introduction of on-board seawater tanks, which allow for the\ud recovery of animals immediately after they have been landed fromthe net.In this study, we have validated\ud a vigour index that could be used both by fisheries scientists and by the industry dealing with live-traded\ud Nephrops, allowing identification of the proportion of trawl-caught lobsters that fail to recover following\ud capture and are not in...
