Untangling the effects of size, habitat and invertebrate biodiversity on parasite prevalence in the Caribbean spiny lobster

The spiny lobster Panulirus argus is an important benthic mesopredator and a major fishing resource across the Wider Caribbean region. This species is host to the pathogenic virus PaV1 and metacercariae of Cymatocarpus solearis, a digenean trematode whose first intermediate host remains unknown. Previous studies found that the probability of infection with PaV1 was higher in...

Lobsters: ocean icons in changing times

The 10th International Conference and Workshop on Lobster Biology and Management was held in Cancún, Mexico, in May 2014. The papers included in this supplementary issue of the ICES Journal of Marine Science are a sample of the multidisciplinary nature of the conference and provide new knowledge of the biology, ecology, fisheries, and management and aquaculture of clawed, spiny...

Aggressive behaviour of spotted spiny lobsters (Panulirus guttatus) in different social contexts: the influence of sex, size, and missing limbs

Panulirus guttatus is a sedentary spiny lobster that exhibits cryptic behaviour and a low degree of gregariousness. Because these lobsters are obligate coral reef-dwellers and avoid sandy expanses, they are potentially distributed in relatively small, discrete populations with variable social contexts, which can strongly influence the expression of aggression. The present study...

Caribbean spiny lobsters equally avoid dead and clinically PaV1-infected conspecifics

Social behaviour in Caribbean spiny lobsters (Panulirus argus) is mediated by conspecific chemical cues. These lobsters can be attracted to shelters emanating chemical cues from conspecifics but tend to avoid shelters emanating chemical cues from injured conspecifics, dead conspecifics, and conspecifics with visible signs of a potentially lethal disease caused by the pathogenic...
