Sea lobsters are among the most valuable seafood traded commodities. Since its production with fishing has decreased every year in the world, many types of cultural studies have been carried out and success has been achieved. The aim of this research is to investigate the survival of European lobster (Homarus gammarus) larvae in Turkey and to determine the nature of the direction of growth opportunities. This research is the first study in Turkey investigating the nature of the direction of growth opportunities and the survival of European lobster larvae. Larval release, larvae feeding and survival possibilities were investigated on two egg-bearing lobsters obtained from Çanakkale coasts. Both broodstock larvae were able to survive until the post larval stage. The larvae of the first mature lobster reached 10.857 mm total length and 0.025 g live weight after approximately 30 days. The larvae of the second mature lobster reached 26.9 mm total length and 0.502 g live weight after 33 days. A significant difference was found in the larvae of two mature lobsters at the end of the experiment according to their initial dimensions in both length and weight (p <0.05). In addition, it was determined that the growth was higher due to the higher temperature in the larvae of the second mature lobster.
