Lobster Trap Video (LTV)
consists of a traditional two parlor lobster trap equipped with
a time-lapse video recording system. We are able to obtain 24-48
continuous hours of video.
the summer of 2002 we created a large in situ mesocosm near the
UNH Coastal Marine Laboratory (CML), within which we can continuously
track the movements of up to 5 lobsters at a time.
acoustic communication is common in many marine species, it has
received little attention in the American lobster. In recent work
we have demonstrated that American lobsters are capable of both
producing and detecting low frequency sounds.
