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. We sold every lobster caught by Sion before he finished his lobster season in September, and we will start supplying his lobsters again in April 2021.
Bridlington on the East coast of Yorkshire is home to many small scale fisherman who depends on lobster fishing all year round. To keep our supply lines open this winter we have been working with Bridlington fishing boats. Winter lobsters are always more expensive because most west coast lobster fisherman switch to other catch in and far fewer lobsters are landed on our coast. Christmas is the peak of the market because demand ramps up from France and Spain, both of which enjoy a tradition of making seafood the centre of their Christmas feasts.
We are offering three sizes of lobsters
Small (400 – 600 ) grams
Medium (600- 800 grams
Large (800 gram – 1kilo).
We are very pleased to be able to open delivery to the rest of England – unfortunately, the lobsters are more expensive this way as there is a lot more packaging involved to send them safely at the temperature required.
Our NORTH WALES lobster season is over until we start again in 2021
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. Sion has now pulled up his pots for the winter, but we will be back selling his lobster’s in 2021!
