We committed to providing funding from other coastal funds to contribute towards developing the Marine Discovery Centre in the heart of Whitby.

The works are well underway in transforming this area of the fish quay into a vibrant educational centre and laboratory.

Their aim is to protect Whitby’s fishing heritage by conserving the local lobster populations and the Marine Discovery Centre will help to raise vital funds for it to become self-sustaining in future years.

To conserve the lobster population, they aim to release 100,000 juvenile lobsters into the sea; maintaining ecological balance and protecting the region’s lobster industry for generations to come, and it is fantastic to see the works underway with 2,000 already released.

The major refit is on course for being completed in August with opening times to be confirmed over the coming weeks.
