  4. 4. Taxonomy of lobsters Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Subphylum: Crustacea Class: Malacostraca Order: Decapoda Infraorder: Astacidea Family: Nephropidae
  5. 5. There are numerous species of lobsters, According to the IUCN there are about 230 species. They are belong to different geniuses such as Acantharctus Antipodarctus Arctides Bathyarctus Biarctus Cardus Chelarctus Homarus Metanephrops Panulirus
  6. 6. External anatomy of the Lobster The body of a lobster is segmented. The appendages (antennae, pincers, legs, etc), are jointed. The body is covered by an exoskeleton made of chitin The exoskeleton requires them to molt as they grow, in a process called ecdysis.
  7. 7. Internal anatomy
  8. 8. Like dolphins, lobsters use complicated signals to establish social relationships. They sometimes walk hand-in-hand, the old leading the young. To escape from enemies, lobsters swim backwards by flipping their tail. Behavior of lobsters

  20. 20. Culture fishery Capture fishery Lobster fishery
  21. 21. Lobsters can be culture in artificial environments ,with special conditions. It requires specific technologies ,knowledge and skills.
  22. 22. Capturing is the most popular way of lobster fishery. Lobsters are collected from their natural habitats by diving.
  23. 23. Also traps are used to catch lobsters
  24. 24. When we consider the lobster fishery in Sri Lanka, both of these methods are used. After catching the lobsters ,they are brought to lobster collecting centers. They are kept in marine water tanks with an oxygen supply until transport.

  32. 32. Health Benefits of Lobsters Lobsters are low in fat content, making them one of the best choices for health conscious people. The high content of protein makes this food beneficial, especially for athletes. Lobsters are low in cholesterol and thereby, they assist in maintaining triglyceride levels in the body and keeping the heart healthy. Like other seafood, lobsters are also a good source of omega 3-fatty acids that are essential for the proper functioning of the heart and brain.
  33. 33. These fatty acids help in lowering the risk of arrhythmias, which can lead to sudden cardiac deaths. Furthermore, the compounds in lobsters facilitate in reducing the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque and lowering the blood pressure. Lobster can be very effective in preventing various health disorders such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, colon cancer and chronic conditions involving bone, connective tissue, heart and blood vessels. Zinc found in lobsters is necessary for increasing activities of the brain, boosting the immune system and preventing loss of vision. In addition, this mineral also effectively heals injuries in body tissues.
  34. 34. Phosphorus, found in abundance in lobsters, aids in the formation of teeth and bones. It facilitates the rate of metabolism, enhances the functioning of kidneys and lessens joint pain. Being a great source of vitamin B12, lobsters also help in maintaining the red blood cells and nerve cells. It improves the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and prevents other neurological problems. Lobsters possess the trace element, selenium, which is beneficial for triggering the activity of thyroid glands as well as the immune system. Selenium is known to protect the body cells against free radicals during the process of metabolism, apart from monitoring the oxidation of cholesterol to prevent coronary artery disease.
  35. 35. General weight of an adult lobster is about 1 or 1.5 kg 1kg is marketed approximately Rs 2000 to Rs 3000
  36. 36. There is a high market for the live lobsters. Therefore there is a threat of overfishing. So legislations are required. Fisher folk should be aware about sustainable utilization. Conservation plans should be prepared and launched . It may be a grate service to protect lobsters not only as a food source, but also as an important component of marine biodiversity.
