ABSTRACT Temporal variability in the population parameters of the Caribbean spiny lobster Panulirus argus (Latreille, 1804) in Cuban waters Modifications in life-history traits are often concomitant with prolonged periods of exploitation or changes in the environment, producing changes in population abundance. . Both of them act as selective forces and could affect population parameters behaviour like growth rate, reproduction output, natural mortality rate and size at first maturity. Because of the economic importance of Caribbean spiny lobster (Panulirus argus) for Cuba and other countries of western central Atlantic, it is necessary to make a careful study in its life cycle processes and changes happened in temporal scale. Data used were obtained from biological monitory program in Gulf of Batabanó, main fishing ground in Cuban waters, from 1963-2002. Estimates of annual growth parameters of von Bertalanffy´s growth function ranged from 170 and 199.1 mm carapace length for asymptoti.....
