Ecological and genetic basis for sustainable fishery for the Atlantic seabob shrimp Xiphopenaeus kroyeri in Suriname


To improve the sustainable exploitation of the Atlantic seabob shrimp in Suriname, its genetics and ecology will be studied by assessing species and population structure, and by investigating the function of coastal habitats for its life cycle and feeding ecology. As such, scientific knowledge on the target species will underpin management decisions on sustainable measures.
