Lockdown Lobsters started in March 2020 with a simple mission to help a fishermen, Sion, from North Wales and to sell his lobsters to London in lockdown. Previously North Wales lobster from the clear waters around the Llyn Peninsula was almost exclusively exported to Europe and China. The international shut down of Covid 19 gave us the opportunity to shorten supply lines for even by finding a UK market for one of Wales’s finest products.

We sold every lobster caught by Sion before he finished his lobster season in September. A third generation fisherman, he launches his boat from an almost deserted small cove, rather than a busy harbour. The lobster he catches are packed carefully in cool boxes for transport the afternoon before our delivery date. Now with more capacity and working with other local fishermen, Sion is back bringing his Welsh lobsters to us for 2021.

Our NORTH WALES lobster season is about to begin.

Our story started in March in North Wales when acclaimed photographer Jude Edginton met Sion Williams a third-generation fisherman on the North Wales coast for a photoshoot. With lockdown coming, they created a unique plan to deliver his catch from sea to London front doors in under 24 hours.

Since that March meeting, every lobster Sion has landed has been sold by Lockdown Lobsters and delivered to London doorways and restaurants. A massive thank you to all our customers. Each winter, Sion moves to other seasonal catch but weather permitting, we kept London supplied with Yorkshire lobsters. Sion has set out his fishing pots now for 2021 and we will bringing them to you soon.
