Make a lasting difference – leave a gift in your Will
Have you spent your life enjoying the fruits of the sea? Whether it’s just a healthy obsession with seafood, sailing, fishing, holidays at the coast, a marine based family business or just a keen interest in our oceans.
Help us to deliver our programmes of marine conservation, research and education for future generations. By leaving a legacy you can have a long lasting, positive impact on both lobster stocks and the science so essential in helping communities fish sustainably.
A legacy gift doesn’t have to be large and won’t stop you from providing for your family. There are many different types of legacy and your solicitor can help advise you on which one would suit you best.
The National Lobster Hatchery receives no recurrent government funding and for the main part, relies on the revenue generated by our small but popular visitor centre. Any donation you are able to provide would be gratefully received, alternatively if you would like to assist us with the delivery of a specific project, we would be very keen to hear from you.
The National Lobster Hatchery is a pioneering marine conservation, research and education charity. Our work focuses upon a novel form of managing our living marine resources that compliments existing fisheries management tools and takes an interventional approach to conserving vulnerable lobster populations.
If you are considering making a will, it’s important that you use a solicitor. If you have a will already, your solicitor will advise you on how to change it.

Leave a Legacy
“From the window of Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, I watch local fishermen as they gather lobsters from their pots. For me and many like me, lobster is one of the most luxurious and enjoyable seafoods available. However, if something isn’t done to protect lobster stocks, in a relatively short time, these things will just be memories.
The National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow is committed to protecting and increasing lobster stocks but they are also conducting valuable research in marine biology and spreading their message by providing education both for those in the industry and the general public. Their commitment and dedication is unwavering and working with local fishermen, they have already made a significant contribution to the increase of lobster stocks in the area. However, the issue is enormous and not just restricted to North Cornwall. More needs to be done and if anyone can do it, they will!
I am proud to be an NLH Patron and would urge anyone who is interested in marine biology and sustainability, or who merely wants to continue to enjoy eating seafood in years to come, to support this worthy cause.”Nathan Outlaw
“How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment; we can start now, start slowly changing the world!”Anne Frank (diary entry, 1944)
How can our charity compete with the humanitarian charities? The answer is simple: give a man a fish and he can feed his family for a day, give him a fishing net and he can feed his family for a month. However, if the seas around his village have been overfished then he can do neither.Dominic Boothroyd, National Lobster Hatchery
“I shall pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.”Etienne de Grellet (1773-1855)
