Experiments were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions to evaluate catch performance of traditional rush and modern plastic spiny lobster (Palinurus elephas) traps. Our results showed that there was no significant difference in the catch efficiency of the two kinds of traps used suggesting that plastic traps could play an important role in re-launching the local artisanal fishery.
