Baby Lobster release 15th March 2014 press release.

  1. 1. First baby lobster release of 2014. On Saturday 15th March, a group of five volunteer divers took 450 baby lobsters out on Atlantic Scuba's boat Stingray, to be dispatched into the wild. The lobsters have been waiting, mainly due to the bad weather, to be released for several weeks. The National Lobster Hatchery were once again asking for help. Mark Milburn of Atlantic Scuba said that this was their first release of the year. This makes a total of 2,950 baby lobsters released by Mr Milburn and the volunteer divers, over the last eighteen months, around Falmouth Bay. The National Lobster Hatchery says that, there is an expected 80% survival rate of lobsters released by divers. Within the next year the area should start to see the benefits of these releases.
