New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Lobster Tagging Project – from GoodMorningGloucester

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department in cooperation with the University of New Hampshire is in the process of trying to identify areas in New Hampshire state waters with aggregations of large reproductive female lobsters and track their movements.  Though we’re also very interested in finer scale movements within the State, perhaps our most interesting tag returns have come from other states.  We’ve had two lobsters that were caught near Portland Maine and had moved over thirty miles.  We’ve also had a few reports from fishermen in the Gloucester that have caught tagged lobsters in their traps.  http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/new-hampshire-fish-and-game-departments-lobster-tagging-project/
