UCLUELET, B.C. (CP) - When you've been abandoned by your parents, you're 4,000 miles from home and even the federal government doesn't love you anymore, then you know you're really in trouble. This, apparently, is the fate of a huge batch of lobsters, transplanted to the west coast of Vancouver Island during the last six years from their native habitat off the Atlantic provinces. It was all part of a federal fisheries experiment to determine if a viable lobster fishery could be launched on the West Coast with Atlantic lobsters. The lobster is not native to Pacific waters. Whether or not, the experiment was a success seems to be a subject of hot debate among fisheries experts. All that is known for sure is that the fisheries branch has abandoned its operations at delightfully named Fatty Basin at the head of Useless Inlet northeast of this tiny village. SCIENTISTS LEAVE .. Last May the federal fisheries research board dismantled its lobster hatchery building and the scientists left the surviving lobsters to fend for themselves. "The experiment was designed to find out if eastern lobsters could be transplanted to the West Coast, if tliey would survive here and reproduce in the wild," said Dr. Ray Ghe-lardi, fisheries biologist in charge of the program. "The program definitely proved that lobsters can survive in B.C." However, the program fell short of proving whether the species can be introduced in large enough numbers at different locations on the coast to sustain a commercial fishery. Dr. Ghelardi said the logistics of getting phase two of the program under way-salting other coastal areas with Maritime lobsters-are immense. He estimated it would take a million more lobsters, upwards of $1 million and a considerable increase in personnel involved in the project. YOUNG HAVE IT TOUGH ... The big problem was the survival of the young. During the k.Val stage the young float to the surface where the nutrient food supply is rich. In Useless Inlet, they were at the mercy of strong tides and high winds which scattered them over hundreds of miles of ocean. Dr. Ghelardi estimated that only between one and five per cent of all hatched eggs survive the larval stage, and of these, only a similar percentage get to be a harvestable four to six 3'ears old. The only major problem the adult lobsters faced was with mink and otter, who dined royally during the early stages of the experiment in Maritime lobsters every low tide. The fisheries people solved this by rbringing in a professional trapper. Since the experiment was abandoned last May, no one has seen how the estimated 5,000 surviving lobsters have been making out. The final decision on whether to proceed with phase two of the experiment rests with federal officials and ultimately with Environment Minister Jack Davis. Dr. Ghel \di said the second stage would involve scattering about one million lobsters in a small coastal area to determine if the population will remain constant or increase. At the moment, the Alaska lung crab-B.C's appetizing and rerativaly inexpensive answer to the high-priced east coast lobster-seems in no danger of losing top billing on West Coast menus.
