Scientists from the St Abbs Marine Station are working in cooperation with commercial fishermen to study the population structure of lobsters and brown crabs in and around the St Abbs and Eyemouth Voluntary Marine Reserve (VMR). Around 2,000 lobsters and brown crabs will be tagged within and surrounding the VMR. Tags are a 2" yellow label with St Abbs Marine Station written on it with a unique identification number. The Marine Station will keep the animal to take measurements and release it back into the sea. For more details contact Kevin Scott at the St Abbs Marine Station on: This email address is being protected from spambots.
