Conservation & Threats

To understand what threats the turbellaria found on the Tropical spiny lobster (Panulirus ornatus) are currently facing we need to understand the relationship they share with the lobsters. If indeed they do share a symbiotic relationship with the lobster i.e. seeking refuge whilst  ridding the lobster of unwanted parasites, there may be a current threat of overfishing. If overfishing is occurring in the Queensland East Coast Tropical Lobster Fishery than the exploitation of potential habitat for the turbellarians may be lost, being detrimental to the future of this species. However, the fishery is currently managed in Queensland reasonably well and over-exploitation is probably not occurring however would be important to look into.
