The National Lobster Hatchery is a pioneering marine conservation, research and education charity. Our primary aim is to help conserve the vulnerable lobster populations and preserve coastal marine biodiversity. In doing so we will be safeguarding the livelihoods of small coastal communities and preserve our rich coastal heritage. Fisheries around the world are suffering from major over-exploitation. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations state that over 75% of the world's major fisheries are either: fully exploited, over-exploited, depleted or recovering.
It is clear that additional measures are required in order to improve the way we treat our living marine resources and this is why our work is so important. Lobster stocks themselves are incredibly vulnerable and both the Scandinavian and Mediterranean stocks have completely collapsed and not recovered to this day.
Our public visitor centre welcomes over 40,000 per year to learn about the fishery and the sustainability issues it faces. Help us to balance the need for a sustainable and productive fishery with the needs and requirements of our living marine resources.

"Why can I only gift aid £4 rather than the full cost of the hamper?"
You can only gift aid on items that are classed as a donation, so this could be for an adoption or on admissions. Unfortunately you can not gift aid products.
