Lobster sanctuary

For my industrial coast part of the ‘Establishing image project’I wanted to portray the industrial coast with a bit of a twist to it. I looked out a story about mass scale production with a tie to the sea life. This is where I stumbled across the National lobster hatchery. I found out that when fishermen catch an impregnated lobster they call the hatchery, where they prepare a tank. The mother is then kept in this tank until her young are born and then she is given back to the fisherman who caught her. These young lobsters are then reared to then be released back into the wild.

Big thanks to Sarah Coates for letting me into the hatchery.
