Description

This dataset was produced by undertaking Stable Isotope Analysis (SIA) of 30 eastern rock lobsters (Sagmariasus verreauxi) with comparisons between lobster tissue types (leg, antennae, abdomen). The lobsters were collected in Shellharbour, NSW, Australia in 2020. We wanted to test whether non-lethal sampling of llobsters by removing a limb instead of sampling abdomen tissue (which is lethal) can be done while also maintaining robust interpretations about lobster diet.
