Adopt-A-Lobster Program At Our Hatchery

By adopting a lobster from our hatchery, you’re helping to support our Lobster Stock Enhancement Research Project.

This is a response to the steady decline in lobster landings in Fishing Area 26A seen since the 1980s. Our year-round

project aims to promote the future health of lobster fishing by restocking the depleting resource. We are a non-profit

organization who is supported financially by local fisher folk. Your donation will help the continuation of our mission to

successfully raise and release lobsters back into the ocean as well as provide history and education to our visitors.


                                       Thank you for your help and support!
