Description 
Summary

The data are collected as part of the NCMR assessment of commercial demersal stocks in the Greek Seas. Data on Nephrops norvegicus are collected at sea during research cruises. Age and growth parameters are available per area, using length frequency methods. Length frequency distributions are based on the carapace length. Information on the reproductive cycle and moulting condition as well as on stomach content are available. Finally, selectivity trawl cod-end studies had been carried out.
