Lobster Hatcheries

Sweet succulent lobster dipped in butter. Sounds tasty right? But will it always be available? In some areas of the Maritimes, lobster landings are down. So fishermen are looking to science to replenish the industry.

Lobster larvae are seeded and kept in hatcheries before they're released to the ocean.
The idea is to protect them from predators like gulls and fish.
