The National Lobster Hatchery

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.
