The livestream has been popular with both Norwegian and international viewers in recent years. For the 2021 season, the Green-Bay Project has constructed a brand new trap made of wood, aluminium and plexiglass.
Research technician Lene Christensen checks and baits the trap every day at noon, and any lobsters in the trap are registered, marked and released.
The trap is located in a conservation area for lobsters. Research has shown that lobsters in conservation areas are more numerous and have bigger claws than lobsters in areas where they are fished. Observations from the lobster trap are used in further research on the effects of conservation areas.
