Photographic and trawl surveys of scampi in SCI 3 were conducted in September/October 2013. Estimates of burrows have increased steadily since 2009, with estimates of scampi showing a smaller relative increase. Trawl catch rates were comparable with 2010, and higher than 2009. Over 3300 scampi were tagged and released to investigate growth, and recaptures to date have been low. Scampi emergence patterns were investigated with acoustic tags.
