4 296 Lobsters GENERAL REMARKS The lobsters include a variety of crustaceans ranging in size from a few centimetres to over 1 m. They are more or less elongate animals with cylindrical or flattened bodies and a prominent tail or abdomen consisting of 6 movable segments and a terminal fan, which is usually about as long as the rigid and often spiny or tuberculate head or carapace. The eyes are stalked and usually movable in the sockets of the carapace, but reduced or even absent in some families (i.e., the deepsea Thaumastochelidae).The most conspicuous of the appendages of the anterior part of the body, under the carapace, are a pair of usually small, slender antennules, a pair of more robust antennae (long and cylindrical in most families, scale-like in the slipper lobsters or Scyllaridae) and 5 pairs of legs (pereopods or thoracic legs).the first pair of legs is enlarged in certain families (Nephropidae, Synaxidae) or in certain species of others (Justitia of Palinuridae);the legs may all end in a simple curved dactyl (i.e., Palinuridae, Synaxidae, Scyllaridae) or some of them may terminate in true pincers or chelae (i.e. the first 3 pairs in Nephropidae, 4 or 5 pairs in Polychelidae). The abdominal appendages are short and biramous reduced abdominal legs or pleopods. In the Western Central Atlantic, lobsters are represented by 6 families and 34 species, of which only a few can be considered to be of interest to fisheries at the present time. Apart from the common Caribbean spiny lobster, Panulirus argus, no lobster species are caught at present in large quantities within Area 31; the American lobster (Homarus americanus), which is the most important commercial lobster species on the Atlantic coast of North America, is mainly fished to the north of Area 31. From 1984 to 1998 the lobster capture production (Panulirus only, almost entirely Panulirus argus) reported from Area 31 totaled t (Anguilla: t; Antigua: t; Bahamas: t; Belize: t; Bermuda: 265 t; Haiti: 240 t; Honduras: t; Mexico: t; Nicaragua: 488 t; USA: t; and Venezuela: t).

7 Nephropidae 299 NEPHROPIDAE True lobsters and lobsterettes Diagnostic characters: Moderate- to large-sized crustaceans. Carapace (or head ) cylindrical, with a well-developed median rostrum and variously ornamented with spines or nodules, occasionally smooth; eyes movable, usually well developed with black pigment, but small and lacking pigment or even absent in some deep water forms.antennae long and whip-like, antennules slender, ending in 2 long flagella.tail powerful, with a well-developed fan; abdominal segments smooth, or with one or more transverse grooves, or spiny, or granulate. First 3 pairs of walking legs ending in true pincers, the first pair, and especially its pincers, usually enlarged. Colour: variable, depending on the species; some drab, others marked with pink or red. Deep sea forms are whitish or pinkish. Homarus Metanephrops Habitat, biology, and fisheries: This family comprises 12 species in Fishing Area 31 (11 genera worldwide) ranging in size from 10 to over 120 cm, and occurring in depths ranging from the shoreline to over m. All lobsters and lobsterettes are bottom dwelling species, usually preferring hard and irregular bottoms which offer shelter, although some may also occur on open sand or even mud, digging burrows. The only important commercial species at this time in the western Atlantic is the American lobster Homarus americanus, but the fishing grounds for this species lie mostly to the north of Area 31. Other species from deeper waters, caught in exploratory trawling cruises, might possibly have some potential when fishing operations extend into deeper water and they are here described on individual sheets to facilitate their identification. In particular, some species of Metanephrops and Nephropsis caught during commercial fishing operations for the Royal red shrimp (Pleoticus robustus) have entered local markets sporadically. No statistics are available on these landings. Similar families occurring in the area Palinuridae: carapace without a median rostrum, but with strong frontal horns over the eyes;all walking legs without pincers, first pair not greatly enlarged, except in Justitia. frontal horn Palinuridae

Colour: uniform pink. Size: Maximum length: About 400 mm; commonly 250 mm. Habitat, biology, and fisheries: A deep sea lobster living in burrows in soft bottoms between 290 and 878 m, usually between 550 and 830 m. Not actively fished for at present. This species has been obtained in sizeable quantities during exploratory deep trawling operations with oversized bottom trawls in the Caribbean. Distribution: Straits of Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Brazil (Amapá and Bahia).

UFJ Diagnostic characters: A medium sized lobster. Body cylindrical; carapace granular, with a well-developed median rostrum armed with lateral and ventral teeth, but none on dorsal midline, and without a longitudinal ridge behind cervical groove; a pair of spines dorsally on carapace behind cervical groove.eyes well developed and pigmented; antennae long and whip-like; small antennal scales present. Tail powerful with a well-developed fan, not conspicuously granulate; each abdominal segment with a deep transverse groove; pleura of second segment squarish in side view. First 3 pairs of legs ending in true pincers, the first pair long and stout with large, flattened, naked fingers. Colour: solid red to orange red; cornea black. Size: Maximum length: about 200 mm. Habitat, biology, and fisheries: Occurs in soft substrate (mud or coralline rubble) between 230 and 400 m. Although its large size makes it an attractive fishery subject, this deep-water species is not actively fished for at present. It has been taken during exploratory commercial fishing but is scarce. Distribution: Southwestern Caribbean, off Panama and Colombia.
13 Nephropidae 305 Eunephrops cadenasi Chace, 1939 Frequent synonyms / misidentifications: None / None. FAO names: En - Sculptured lobster. UPC Diagnostic characters: A large lobster. Body cylindrical and smooth; carapace with a well-developed median rostrum. Antennae long and whip-like. No spines dorsally on carapace behind cervical groove. Tail powerful, with a well-developed fan. First 3 pairs of walking legs ending in true pincers (or claws), those of enlarged first pair massive, flattened, unequal and smooth, without ridges, spines, or hairs.

Habitat, biology, and fisheries: Occurs between 434 and 607 m depth; mostly common between 450 and 550 m. Sizeable quantities of this species have been reported from Guadeloupe. Its large size and rather high commercial value makes it of interest to fisheries. In Guadeloupe this species is caught with cylindrical traps. Marketed fresh and frozen.

Colour: variable, often with a background of yellow or yellowish red, mottled with green or blue; carapace frequently with a blue stripe laterally, overall appearance dark. Size: Maximum length: exceptionally over 640 mm; usually around 250 mm. Habitat, biology, and fisheries: Found on various kinds of bottoms, especially rocky substrates, from the shore to depths of 480 m; most common between 4 and 50 m. Ovigerous females are found throughout the year.migration does not occur, or occurs only on a limited scale.feeds chiefly on bottom living fishes and crustaceans, molluscs, and other invertebrates.one of the most important Crustacea fisheries in the northwest Atlantic (Area 21). In that area, the capture production from 1984 to 1998 was t (mean capture production was t/year). It has been reported that small quantities may be landed in the northernmost part of Area 31 but separate statistics are not reported for this species from that area. American lobsters are traditionally obtained with traps, but in recent years trawling proved to be commercially feasible, especially in the southern part of its range. Marketed fresh, frozen, and alive (Beard and McGregor, 1991). The meat is also canned. Distribution: Western Atlantic from Newfoundland (Canada) to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (USA).

FAO names: En - Prickly lobsterette; Fr - Langoustine épineuse; Sp - Cigala de grano. NFZ Diagnostic characters: A small lobster. Body cylindrical; carapace granular, with a well-developed median rostrum armed with 2 pairs of lateral spines. Eyes very small, lacking pigment; antennae long and whip-like, antennal scales absent. Tail powerful, with a well-developed fan; pleura (lateral projections) of second abdominal segment with 2 spines on front edge.first 3 pairs of legs ending in true pincers, the first pair moderately stout with short, granular, hairy, but not woolly fingers. Colour: bright red. Size: Maximum length: about 120 mm. Habitat, biology, and fisheries: Found at depths between 470 and m, usually between 900 and m, on mud bottoms. Not fished for at present.
