I love that it is so varied. I like being hands-on, dealing with the fishermen and going out on lobster releases. Once the lobsters are about an inch or so in size we will release them out from the shore, go out with fishermen and pump them to the bottom ocean, or we use a dive club who will take them down for us. It is really satisfying because you know you are having a positive impact.
We help restock the population of lobsters around the Cornish coastline. There was a big crash in the lobster stock in the late 80s/90s due to fishing, so it’s important work. We bring in female lobsters, which are called berried hens, and we house them in our aquaculture systems. We house them until the eggs have hatched, keeping the small larvae for a couple of months, until they are big enough to be released in different locations around the Cornish coastline.
