SIMPSON Fisheries Laboratory, Burnham-on-Crouch, Great Britain INTRODUCTION During a visit to the Bahamas in February 1966 the author made a brief study of the fishery for the spiny lobster (Paiiulirus argus (Latr.) ). Although the observations made were very limited in scope and number, they provide virtually the only data on the size composition of this species from the Bahamas up to that time and they have therefore been put together in this report to make them avail- able to other workers in the field. The general biology of P. arguJ has now been studied by a number of workers in several countries, including Paiva (1965) and Amorim-Borges (1964) in Brazil, Buesa (1961, 1965 ) in Cuba, Walton Smith (1948, 1951 ) in the Baha- mas, and Dawson & Idyll ( 1951 ) and Robinson & Dimitriou (1963) in Florida, U.S.A., but relatively few observations are available on the size composition of the catches from the different areas. In addition to presenting the data on the size composition of the commercial catches, some figures are given on the size
