The NEPHROPS project aims at developing new techniques in hatchery, rearing, fishery enhancement and aquaculture for Nephrops.
Fisheries landings of Nephrops novegicus (also known as Dublin Bay Prawn, Norway Lobster and Langoustine, among other names) are around 59,000 tons a year with a first sale value of close to € 200 million. The NEPHROPS project is intended to bring together complementary information from survey, experimental and laboratory work. This combination of approaches is intended to create synergies and transfer of information between different research groups and the different SME and SME associations and groupings.
