Open seven days a week during the lobster breeding season the Hatchery needs dedicated and resourceful volunteers to help support the work the small team do. We offer a wonderful opportunity for volunteers and students to learn about lobsters and handle these fascinating creatures.
We rely on the enthusiasm and support of our volunteers, of all ages and abilities, who help the hatchery with daily duties, photography, art projects, releasing lobsters and helping out with educational visits. Our volunteers have become part of our hatchery “family” making it a very sociable experience.
We have for the last five years taken on students for placement work, enabling them to develop project work for their marine and aquaculture qualifications. We have worked with The Saltire Awards as young volunteers spent some time during the summer achieving their young person volunteering Saltire Challenge and Saltire Approach awards. If you are aged between 12 and 25 and want to earn young scot points and get some volunteer experience for your CV then contact us or the Saltire Awards for more information.
