Funding this project will enable us to set our ideas in motion. We want to completely rejuvenate the Pier Road area of Whitby, which is currently in a disused state.


We’ll work with local architects to revolutionise the look and function of the fish quay, housing our cutting-edge hatchery whilst also honouring the aesthetic of Whitby’s rich fishing heritage. To do this we’ll need to help of surveyors and structural engineers, so your funding will get our designs through the planning stages and give the Yorkshire Lobster Hatchery a base of operations.

Within the Pier Road site, we also intend to establish our interactive discovery centre where visitors can learn about our conservation work and other marine life native to our waters. We will use the money raised to consult designers behind some of the country’s most eye-catching and engaging zoo exhibitions to ensure our centre conveys why the work we do is so important to Whitby’s lobsters, Whitby’s fisherman and to Whitby itself.
