To improve the potential for INDP to conduct research on the Palinuridae. Dispersal during the larval phase and recruitment to the benthic population have not yet been the subject of research in the area but will be needed to contribute to management of the resource in a highly diverse environment.
1. Training of a member of staff on INDP in morphology and identification of phyllosomas.
2. A provisional key to phyllosomas from Cape Verde waters to facilitate research at INDP.
3. At least one paper in a refereed journal.
