Abstract

PERHAPS your readers interested in economic marine biology may care to know, as a small contribution to the record of times and seasons, that the berried-lobsters kept at the Port Erin Biological Station started hatching out their young on July 15. So far the loss after hatching has been under 1 per cent. We find the best food for the young lobsters to be finely teased up fresh liver of the common shore crabs.
