Lobster Science Partnership Roundtable

The Lobster Science Partnership Roundtable was established to bring together Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientists, Indigenous partners, commercial fishing representatives, and other key researchers to discuss important lobster science research questions and priorities, identify new areas of work, how to effectively work together, and engage others in the process.

Partnership and participants

The partnership aims to chart a common course for lobster science. The Roundtable met on June 15 and discussed the partnership focusing on lobster biology, ecology, and sustainable harvest, including impacts of climate change on productivity, harvest timing, life history, population structure, effects of temperature on the fishery and modeling long-term sustainability. The partnership will also need to determine how it will function.

If you would like to contribute ideas or comments to share on lobster science to the discussion, please contact

The June 15, 2021 meeting participants included Indigenous organizations, academic or research institutions, industry organizations and Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientists.

Lobster science

Fisheries and Oceans Canada uses data from research studies and assessments, scientific monitoring, and information collected by harvesters to assess the overall health of lobster stocks. Stock assessment information is peer reviewed by scientists and published online in a science advisory report.

The Lobster Science Partnership Roundtable will help build upon existing knowledge and partnerships, and create new opportunities to collaborate and increase the body of knowledge on lobster science.
