The Mediterranean slipper lobster (/Scyllarides latus) has been studied within the margins of the National Park of Cabrera’s Archipelago (Spain). Five individuals of S. latus have been tagged with acoustic tags and an array of nine receivers has been placed in the study area to ascertain the movement patterns Then, the distribution and frequency of the acoustic signals of the individuals has been studied during December of 2015 to gain more insight into its winter behavior. The assessment of the movement patterns and habitat use of the individuals can enable a deeper knowledge about the behavior of the species and, hence, increase the effectiveness and adequacy of the management measures directed to the S. latus
