Improving lobster survival rates

In this collaborative research project, the National Lobster Hatchery has partnered with the European Centre to develop a series of experiments that will help to improve the survival rates of lobster hatchlings, and boost their populations in Cornish waters. The NHL is based in Padstow, Cornwall, and aiming to support the region’s vulnerable coastal biodiversity.
