trays were developed to meet longer-term holding requirements faced by lobster
distributors to balance seasonal harvests with market demands. Combined with our aquaBiota water reused
systems, they provide optimum conditions for the lobster to survive and thrive
• The animals are housed in plastic trays which are stacked up in Fiberglas cabinet-like assemblies, or nested into piles, under a shower system. When slid into cabinets, trays are pulled open like drawers, allowing for easy access to each lobster.
• Lobsters in each tray are isolated in individual compartments, a creative arrangement which protects them from attacking one another, and let them to get into a calm state similar to dormancy. Movable plastic inserts, called dividers, can be custom located to accommodate a wide variety of lobster sizes and storage densities.
• Habitats are not limited to seaside installations — in inland facilities the water is recycled to very high proportions (close to 100% of the total waterflow in the system).
Our ready-to use biofilter, pre-coated with active nitrifying bacteria, is then incorporated, along with associated water filtration equipment. The higher the level of water reuse in a chilled system,the more significant the energy savings while the animals are protected from ambient sea water pollution and tide fluctuations.
