Padstow Lobster Hatchery


Launceston Young Farmers visited the National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow last Thursday to explore the conservation work which is done in order to improve the sustainability in fisheries and aquaculture. The club learnt about the processes involved, which included collecting eggs from female lobsters, rearing larvae and releasing the lobsters within the surrounding sea.

It was explained to the club about ongoing research projects, many of which have helped to enhance the stock potential of the European Lobster.

The eye-opening evening was extremely interesting for members.
