Lockdown Lobsters – Delivered live to London
Eat Sustainable Native Wild Lobsters £16 each
Reduce the export of British Seafood and help fishermen
whose businesses are affected by Covid 19.
In normal times we export much of our domestic catch. International Lockdown has given us a chance to change supply lines for the better
Sion Williams is a third generation fishermen and his Dad still helps him launch his boat from a small cove every day on the North Wales coast. Up until now his catch was exclusively exported, so his was just one of the small businesses brought to the brink of disaster in March 2020.
On his last photo shoot, just before lockdown, acclaimed photographer Jude Edginton met Sion and created a unique plan to deliver his catch from sea to front door in under 24 hours. One month and 400kg of lobster later, Lockdown Lobsters has opened a newer, shorter supply network keeping his sustainable fishing business alive.
Finest Welsh lobsters landed on the North Wales Coast

His catch is normally exclusively exported to France, Spain and China with none entering a local supply chain. We want to help Sion by developing a British market that remains after the Coronavirus crisis.
“Right now the coast is teeming with lobster. We spend the winter looking after the stock. Everything we pull up goes back in and the tails of new breeders are clipped. Its illegal to land a clipped breeder. There are only 5 months left in the season and now there is nowhere to sell them.” Sion explains.
We could all be eating this British, fresh, sustainable food source that is ready to be landed on the North Wales Coast.
