We put a lot of energy into putting lobsters back into the sea, most of it is the conscientious efforts of our staff and volunteers; but we use a fair bit of electric with various pumps, heaters and chillers.
We decided to try and be as environmentally responsible as possible with our electrical generation and have had solar panels installed on our roof.
This has been made possible thanks to the generous assistance of our funders
North of Tyne FLAG (Fisheries Local Action Group) Link
CoRE Legacy Fund Link
Naturesave Trust Link
The superstars of the hatchery are our berried hens, these are the ladies holding thousands of eggs that will eventually provide us with the young lobsters we can put back into the sea. Jeff and Dougie who fish from the Restless Wave have brought us back some great specimens this year and we will shortly be getting the one hundredth lobster to pass through the hatchery.
To mark this momentous event we thought we would run a competition. If you would like to name this famous celebrity lobster have a look on our facebook or twitter accounts to find out more
