Trans-Tasman Sea larval transport : Is Australia a source for New Zealand rock lobsters ?

  title={Trans-Tasman Sea larval transport : Is Australia a source for New Zealand rock lobsters ?},
  author={Stephen M. Chiswell and John Wilkin and John D. Booth and Basil Stanton},
Two species of rock lobster (Palinuridae) are commonly found in coastal waters around both New Zealand and Australia. Both species have a relatively long larval phase, which raises the question of how populations can be maintained in regions where the mean flow advects larvae away from the coast. Previous work shows that Jasus edwardsii is genetically indistinguishable between Australia and New Zealand, whereas Sagmariasus verreauxi may be genetically different between the 2 countries… CONTINUE READING
