The National Lobster Hatchery
We’re proud supporters of The National Lobster Hatchery. A pioneering charity, operating a stocking programme for the European lobster that complements traditional approaches to fisheries management.
“From the window of Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, 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.”
