The National Lobster Hatchery
The National Lobster Hatchery is a pioneering marine conservation, research and education Charity operating a stocking programme for the European lobster that complements traditional approaches to fisheries management.
The charity has three outputs:
- The operation of an active stock enhancement programme to stabilise lobster populations, adding additional stock and developing tools to allow re-stocking of the fishery should populations collapse.
- Research to both further develop lobster culture processes and techniques and assess the impact of lobster stocking.
- A public awareness and education programme to raise awareness of fisheries sustainability issues.
The main outcome of the Charity’s work is that mankind will have a responsible and better informed approach to lobster stock enhancement and re-stocking, resulting in better managed stocks, better informed policy and more prosperous coastal communities.
