BRITAIN-ENVIRONMENT-FISHING-LOBSTERS

Manager and marine biologist Joe Redfern uses his phone to record stage-four juvenile lobsters in a segmented tray to protect them from other juveniles in the Whitby Lobster hatchery in Whitby, northern England, on March 2, 2023. - The Whitby Lobster Hatchery has been created with the aim of protecting Whitby's fishing heritage by conserving the local lobster populations. The Hatchery will receive wild caught, egg-bearing lobsters, donated from local fisherfolk, and will protect the juveniles during the most vulnerable period of their life cycle before releasing them back into the wild to fortify the existing lobster population. The aim is to release 100,000 juvenile lobsters into the sea to maintaining ecological balance and protecting the region's lobster industry for generations to come. Like all the ports along the Yorkshire coast, lobster fishing has replaced the white fish industry as the main target species. Lobster now makes up the majority of income for our fishing communities with the Whitby fleet of potting boats catching around 100,000 lobster each year.
