NOAA Photo Library Image - r0023647

Kathy Castro of the University of Rhode Island and John Catena of NOAA remove hatchery-reared American lobsters and place them into salt-water filled bags. The lobsters will then be transported to the cobble reefs in small batches and hand released onto the reefs. The process of raising, tagging and releasing the lobsters to study them was very time-consuming and labor intensive
