Clovelly celebrates its sustainably caught lobsters and crabs

A great day out for all the family.
Clovelly celebrates its famous, sustainably caught, lobsters and crabs.  Live folk music, quay kitchens, cookery demonstrations, a magnum of champagne prize draw, delicious lobster and crab dishes, craft stalls and beer tasting.  Plus street theatre, walkabout magic, balloon modelling and AONB craft activities.

It’s in aid of the National Lobster Hatchery, Padstow, who will be exhibiting some of their baby lobsters prior to and after their release into Clovelly Bay at the beginning and end of the day. They are best known for their lobster stock enhancement programme where they rear the baby lobsters from theeggs. It is the most vulnerable stage of their life cycle after which they release them back into the wild, with the help of local fishermen and dive groups.

In 2014 alone, they released 53,000 juveniles back into the wild and they hope to increase the numbers released over the next few years. Anyone can Adopt a Lobster for just £4 to help pay for their baby lobsters to be raised and then released.  http://www.nationallobsterhatchery.co.uk/
