Surveys for lobster larvae in offshore waters of the north-eastern Gulf of Maine in 1983, 1987 and 1989 confirm that local hatching occurs mainly at depths <100 m over the banks, including Georges and Browns Banks. Detailed studies in the vicinity of Georges Bank in late July of both 1987 and 1989 indicate that the first and second moult stages were located primarily over the bank whereas stages III and IV lobster were collected both over and off the bank. At times stage IV lobster were more… 
American Lobster, Homarus americanus, Reproduction and Recruitment in a New England Estuary
TLDR
The putative hatch dates of egg clutches carried by estuarine and coastal lobsters are calculated and show thatEstuarine lobster eggs likely hatch 2–3 weeks earlier than eggs carried by coastal females, indicating that new recruits to the Great Bay Estuary lobster population likely come from both resident estUarine lobsters and coastal females.
Early Life History and a Modeling Framework for Lobster (Homarus americanus) Populations in the Gulf of Maine
TLDR
It is argued that in this region the spatial patterns of recruitment and the abundance of lobsters are substantially driven by events governing the earliest life history stages, including the abundance and distribution of planktonic stages and their initial settlement as Young-of-Year (YOY) lobsters.
Lobster larval transport in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence
A bio-physical semi-Langrangian model was developed to follow the drift and abundance of lobster larvae from hatching to settlement as post-larvae. The geographic domain encompasses Northumberland
Seasonal movements of American lobsters in southern Gulf of Maine coastal waters: patterns, environmental triggers, and implications for larval release
TLDR
The seasonal movements of ovigerous lobsters in coastal waters significantly influence the location and timing of larval hatch and, ultimately, settlement.
Studies on the developmental conditions of the European lobster (Homarus gammarus Linnaeus, 1758) at the rocky island of Helgoland (German Bight, North Sea)
From 2000 to 2008, ca. 9,000 one-year-old hatchery-reared, 560 larger hatchery-reared lobsters and 730 wild captured lobsters were tagged and released at Helgoland, North Sea. To date, the recapture
Bottlenecks to fishery yield for american lobster in a portion of the gulf of St. Lawrence
TLDR
Egg production, larval survival, and migration of large benthic stages are considered to be possible bottlenecks to fishery yields for the American lobster Homarus americanus in the eastern Northumberland Strait, southern Gulf of St Lawrence, and recommend setting management targets specific to an area.
The impact of seasonal movements by ovigerous American lobsters (Homarus americanus) on egg development and larval release
TLDR
Assesses how the movements of ovigerous lobsters would influence the temperature regimes they experienced and thus the development of their eggs using a combination of laboratory and field experiments that expose animals to seasonally fluctuating water temperatures.
Potential connectivity among American lobster fisheries as a result of larval drift across the species’ range in eastern North America
TLDR
A bio-physical model was used to estimate for the first time the effect of larval drift on potential connectivity among American lobster fisheries management areas over the geographic range of the species.
Assessing potential influence of larval development time and drift on large-scale spatial connectivity of American lobster (homarus americanus)
TLDR
A new larval drift model was used to investigate potential spatial connectivity of American lobsters at a large scale incorporating most of the species' range, and predicted retention of larvae in certain areas, and reliance on external larval supply in others.

Dispersal of Homarus americanus Larvae in the Gulf of Maine from Browns Bank
TLDR
Results indicate that the offshore may contribute up to 97% of the larval recruits for the entire southwestern Nova Scotia region and provides another line of evidence that the Gulf of Maine area represents one lobster recruitment center.
Vertical distribution and daily movements of larval lobsters Homarus americanus over Browns Bank, Nova Scotia
TLDR
Significant vertical migration is demonstrated for stage I lobster, which were most frequently caught between 15 and 30 m water depth during daylight but were rarely caught below 10 m at night, and have important implications for the ecology and dispersal of larval Hornarus arnericanus in offshore waters.
Factors Influencing the Size of American Lobster (Homarus americanus) Stocks Along the Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia, Gulf of St. Lawrence, and Gulf of Maine: A New Synthesis
The general aspects of fluctuating American lobster (Homarus americanus) stocks are considered in an attempt to identify common principles controlling lobster populations in the Gulf of Maine, Gulf
Abundance, Survival, and Vertical and Diurnal Distribution of Lobster Larvae in Northumberland Strait, 1962–63, and their Relationships with Commercial Stocks
TLDR
It is suggested that there is some evidence for a relationship between stage IV larval abundance and subsequent commercial lobster stocks, but that sampling errors are too great to permit accurate prediction.
Larval behavior, hydrodynamic transport, and potential offshore-to-inshore recruitment in the American lobster Homarus americanus
TLDR
Theoretical and field patterns of offshore larval dispersal were explored for the Amencan lobster, finding a gradient of larval stages with a greater proportion of earlier stage larvae in the vlcinlty of offshore canyons, and more mature stage 111 and IV larvae dominating larval distnbutions closer to coastal habltats.
Wind-induced advection of larval decapods into Baie de Plaisance (Îles de la Madeleine, Québec)
TLDR
Although the advection of water masses under the influence of wind events determines the overall abundance of larval decapods in Baie de Plaisance, the late larval stages of both lobster and rock crab behaved differently from the early stages with respect to light intensity and their horizontal distribution.

We used a coupled physical–biological model to examine potential distances between hatching and settlement locations for lobsters in the Gulf of Maine. The physical model is based on a finite-element

Natural diet and feeding habits of the postlarval lobster Homarus americanus
TLDR
The variability in gut fullness and the condition of gut contents among individuals was high during all sampling periods, which indicate that postlarvae in the field forage successfully throughout the day, but the significantly higher incidence of newly ingested prey in the guts of postlarval lobsters at night indicates a higher feeding activity during this time.
