The National Lobster Hatchery (NLH) raises all of its own funds which are used for a wide variety of projects including research and education as well as the ongoing restocking work. These projects are of great importance and are where the majority of funds are spent. However, funding is also needed for the general maintenance of the NLH and updating certain facilities. The interior and exterior of the Hatchery building needs to be repainted. The tiling of the hatchery floor is also an important small project. New class room furniture is needed to host field courses and research students. Part of the visitor centre could also be updated by having a new wall-mounted flat screen television to play an informative film. The following is a wish list of equipment that the NLH would benefit from: 2 computers; till for visitor centre; photocopier; ladder to access loft; flat screen TV.
