Reef cubes at the ready!

Hello Crowdfund team! 

Apologies for being so quiet recently, we have been busy designing and casting the reef cubes for the eagerly awaiting crayfish.  We reached our target of 200 cubes and can confirm they will be deployed into Vobster Quay on the 25th September, right on schedule.

Our campagin raised the funds to deploy 20 white clawed crayfish onto the reef... however we have managed to double that number to 40 ( 20 male & 20 female).  We salute these pioneering crayfish for being the first to explore this bespoke habitat and will hopefully attract others to join them.   The date is yet to be confirmed when the little critters will be released but rest assured, we will update you once they have touched down in reef town!

Thank you for your support on this project and we look forward to sharing the pictures and videos as they develop.

A huge thank you from everyone at

P.S We will be reaching out to our supporters to obtain delivery addresses for stickers and certificates.  Please email them over to crowdfund@arcmarine.co.uk so we can begin mailing them out to you wonderful supporters.
