The National Lobster Hatchery
Tel: 01841 533877
THE NATIONAL LOBSTER HATCHERY WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2000 WITH A VIEW TO CONSERVING WILD POPULATIONS BY RELEASING BABY LOBSTERS BACK INTO THE SEA, AFTER BEING RAISED THROUGH THEIR MOST VULNERABLE STAGES IN CAPTIVITY.
THE VISITOR CENTRE
We aim to make your visit to the National Lobster Hatchery rewarding for everyone. The main attraction has to be seeing our baby lobsters growing up, ready to be released. We also have a resident giant lobster and lots of other crab pot friends. We display a wealth of information about lobsters, the fishery, the sustainability issues it faces and some of the solutions that will help to secure its future.
ADOPT A LOBSTER
Your donation will go directly towards the costs of rearing and releasing a baby lobster, you can then check our website to see where your lobster has been released. You can adopt a single lobster for £3.00 or a family of lobsters for £9.50. We can even do adoptions as wedding favours for a special wedding theme!
