The National Lobster Hatchery

St Ives Bay Holiday Park > Attractions > 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.

We are best known for our lobster stock enhancement programme where we grow on baby lobsters from egg through their most vulnerable stage of their life cycle and release them back into the wild around Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, with the help of local fishermen and dive groups. In 2014 alone, we released 53,000 juveniles back into the wild and we hope to increase the numbers released over the next few years. Anyone can Adopt a Lobster for just £3 to help pay for our baby lobsters to be raised and released back into the wild. Just click on our blinking lobster on the right of your screen. He will show you the way ……..

Our public visitor centre welcomes over 40,000 per year to learn about the fishery and the sustainability issues it faces. Our all-weather tourist attraction in Padstow, North Cornwall offers information and activities for all ages and we welcome well behaved dogs on leads.
