ABSTRACT Twenty-nine percent of trapped nonovigerous females and 69% of trapped ovigerous lobsters were found to be V-notched, during a three-year survey of trap hauls conducted in October 1982-1984 by the Maine Lobstermen's Association. The size-frequency distribution of V-notched lobsters is biased towards larger females relative to that of unmarked females. Calculated numbers of annual eggs per V-notched lobsters were about nine times greater than for unmarked lobsters as a result of their larger size, hence a greater proportion of sexually mature lobsters with higher fecundity. These preliminary results indicate the need to include V-notched lobsters in Maine fishery surveys and assessments and to investigate the possibility of V-notching as a management tool for the Gulf of Maine fishery region.
