Middelkerke still wants to get rid of its marble lobsters
But now a step-by-step plan has been worked out in consultation with Nature and Forest.
They’re going to cordon off the pond so the lobsters can’t leave. There will be nets in the water where they will take out the caught lobsters every day. In the autumn, the municipality then puts mirror carp and burbots in the pond, which are the natural enemies of the lobsters. Middelkerke hopes that the marble lobsters will be out of the pond by the beginning of next year.
