Meet the Team
The lobster hatchery project was started by a group of local fisherman and those keen to see North Berwick and the other harbours of the Forth continue as working harbours.
Jacob Norton is the 2021 Hatchery Manager, back for his third year for the 2021 season after graduating with a degree in Marine and Freshwater Conservation. He researched feeding regimes for lobster larvae for his undergraduate thesis and looks to continue research to complement the conservation work of the Hatchery.
Jacob has a keen interest in fisheries and aquaculture, as well as our nearshore environment.
