The use of traps in the spiny lobster fishery in Tanzania.

P. O. J. Bwathondi

Results of field experiments on catching lobsters by Box traps. Wire traps and Basket traps in the inshore sea at Kunduchi and Fungu Yasini about 20 kilometres north of Dares Salaam were reported. It is suggested that the change from the more popular but inefficient octopus hand net method to trap fishing may help in observing the minimum legal size of the crustaceans in this area.
