It's in aid of the National Lobster Hatchery, Padstow, who will be exibiting some of their baby lobsters prior to their release into Clovelly Bay at the end of the day. At the heart of the NLH's work is their lobster restocking project whereby local fishermen bring 'pregnant' female lobsters to the hatchery so that their delicate offspring are given a better chance in life by being raised in captivity without predators. These young lobsters are raised to a size where they can be released back into the sea and look after themselves.http://www.nationallobsterhatchery.co.uk/
