The early benthic phase (EBP) European lobster Homarus gammarus, and the habitat to which it recruits, remains largely undiscovered. Following reports that juvenile lobsters were being located within an intertidal lobster fishery in Johnshaven, Scotland, a three day census was undertaken. The shore consisted of a wave cut platform with a red sandstone/cobble conglomerate substratum. Three juvenile lobsters of 28, 32 and 45 mm carapace length (CL) were located in a crevice type habitat. It is hypothesized that in some areas of coastline, intertidal crevices act as a peripheral habitat for juvenile lobsters.
