Description 
Summary

Data were collected to provide morphometric and length-weight relationships for the lobster. Relationships are as follows: carapace length on total length/weight/carapace width/abdomen width and Anderson index. The data are used for stock assessment purposes, for estimating size at maturity and for estimating selectivity properties of gear.
