The historical development of the rock lobster industry at Lüderitz is covered from its inception in 1922 up to the latest implications following Namibia's post-independence fisheries management policies. The lobster resource is influenced by many factors ranging from environmental impacts to diamond mining, making proper management and utilization extremely difficult. Catching, transportation at sea, processing to please product preferences of different markets as well as efforts to comply with directives from the authorities, rendered many difficult challenges which company and factory managers had to overcome. Various interesting and lighter moments, incidents and episodes are described with a personal touch, resulting in a contribution with great historical value.
