This is the first time such a large number of large numbers of juvenile lobsters have been released off the Isles of Scilly
Padstow's National Lobster Hatchery take around 1000 baby lobsters to the Isles of Scilly.
The lobsters were released into the islands' clear blue waters.
Philip Callan from the Hell Bay Hotel has offered assistance to the hatchery with their release into the waters around Bryher and Tresco using one of the Hotel's boats.
The lobsters were released down a long tube directly onto the seabed.
As the boat drifts along, the lobsters are slowly loaded into the releasing box and then the water current within the box pushes the babies down a large pipe, leading to the sea bed and their new homes.
Dominic Boothroyd, General Manager of the National Lobster Hatchery, commented:
"This is the first time that we have released large numbers of juveniles in the Isles of Scilly - we have released smaller batches in the islands a few times with the aid of local divers, but this is the first big one.
"The seabed down here is perfect, there are lots of areas of mixed sediment with small boulders, cobbles and rocky substrate that makes up what we think is the perfect habitat for juvenile lobsters in their early benthic stages.
"The support offered by the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company and the Hell Bay Hotel, Will make the whole process possible by providing the assistance, transportation and local knowledge that we require."

The release is also being supported by The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company.
The Isles of Scilly Steamship Company provided free transport on the Scillonian III for all of the lobsters.
Without this support, the charity would simply not be able to afford to release in the Scilly Isles.
Jeff Marston, Chief Executive of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, said:
"This is another really great example of where the Scillonian III is supporting the local economies of Penzance and the Isles of Scilly.
"The Scillonian has been serving the route for 33 years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
"We are delighted to be supporting the lobster release programme and hope the initiative is hugely successful, helping to contribute to the unique natural habitat of such a beautiful part of the world."
