Page 1: Lobster release - press release

Wednesday October 3rd

Scuba Divers have released over 300 juvenile lobsters onto the Manacles Reef.

A volunteer team of scuba divers, organised by Mark Milburn of Atlantic Scuba, collected juvenile lobsters from the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow. They then transported them by boat from Mylor Yacht Harbour to the Manacles Reef, where they were to be released into the wild. The lobsters were taken underwater to the sea bed by the volunteer divers, then carefully released into areas where they are known to thrive. Mark Milburn said he thought the Manacles was an ideal place for the juvenile lobsters to be released, eventually benefiting both the fishing and diving community.
