The New York and Connecticut Sea Grant programs are seeking a consultant to conduct a critical review and synthesis of American lobster
natural and socio-economic research from 2002 to the present.

research and management. This systematic review should address biological, environmental, anthropogenic and socio-economic challenges that have been experienced in this fishery.
The project is to start immediately upon execution of the contract but no later than 7/15/2022. The technical white paper and review paper ready for submission must be completed no later than 7/15/2023.
