Aran, Galway Bay and Slyne Head Nephrops Grounds 2007 UWTV Survey Report
Lordan, Colm; Doyle, Jennifer
In 2007 the sixth in a series of annual UWTV survey was complete and the results of that survey together with a synthesis and analysis of the results. A geostatistical analysis indicates that burrow densities and abundances have fluctuated considerably in space and time. The highest densities occurred in 2004 and the lowest densities in the 2006.The 2007 survey shows an increase in burrow density. Using the survey directly for assessment and management is not yet possible. However, there appears to a negative relationship between abundance and landings in the autumn and a positive relationship between observed densities and landings the following spring. The relationship between abundance and landings is not as clear. There is no serious concern about the stock given the recent survey abundance.
