Photographic and trawl surveys of scampi in SCI 6A were conducted in February/March 2016. The photographic survey estimates of scampi and burrows both showed an increase on the 2013 estimate. The trawl survey estimate reflects a marked reduction from 2013, but an enforced vessel change raised questions over comparability with the previous series. Almost 3900 scampi were tagged and released to investigate growth and some animals have been recaptured by industry.
