This project attempted to extend previous research on the biology and economics of Southern Rock Lobster translocation into a commercial operation. The project developed processes and governance for ongoing commercial scale operations. These will occur at a modest scale for the next three years, producing 50 tonnes per annum of additional harvest. A decision making process has been developed implemented so that the total allowable commercial catch can be readily increased, should the industry wish to further increase the size of the harvest at some point in the future.
