If you go crab fishing or come across any other sea creatures on your travels, please don’t bring them home with you – they are very sensitive creatures and need to be kept at a certain temperature with a good supply of sea water or they won’t survive.

– Centre curator James Robson

Both crabs are now being cared for by experts and will be introduced to the British shore line exhibition.
