dc.description.abstract This thesis focused on two aspects of predation by the West Coast rock lobster (Jasus lalandii). These were (1) the problem of slow growth currently observed in adult male rock lobsters and the putative link between growth rate and food availability, and (2) the influence of rock-lobster predation on the benthos, but more specifically on sea urchins and juvenile abalone. en_ZA
