A Swedish study of capturers of American lobsters off the Swedish west coast has now been published in Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. Publication brief is available here.
Whether or not the American lobster can establish populations in European waters and the occurrence of hybrid eggs are discussed in the paper.
The presence of American lobsters in European waters has been much debated, especially after the Swedish government in 2016 tried to get EU to ban import of live American lobster to EU.
