The Lobster Settling SystemTM
The Lobster Settling SystemTM releasing concept
includes three main components: the Cartridge, the Canister and
the Migration unit.
The cartridge section consists of a finite
number of plates. Each plate is shaped so that the juveniles
find protection against other juveniles as well as a supply of
food, water flow and achieve natural biological development.
Hatching and use of Cartridge section
Lobster juveniles are then transferred to the
cartridge section as soon as they have reached stage IV. The
cartridge section is located within the canister where the
juveniles are kept and fed for a short incubation period.
Transport of Cartridge section
After the incubation period the cartridge
section is transported to the lobster sea-ranching farm.
Placing assembly in the lobster sea-ranching
The cartridge is removed from the canister and
mounted on the migration unit. A retrieval line is attached and
the unit is submerged into the sea on a suitable seafloor
location. The juveniles leave the cartridge/migration section,
to settle in the sea ranch, within a week.
What are the benefits of the Lobster Settling SystemTM ?
- Provides a secure living environment until
the juveniles leave the system
- Gradual migration
occurs without attracting natural
- Enables gradual
acclimatization and adaption from the hatchery to the sea bed
- Allows the through
flow of sea water carrying natural plankton food source
- Allows for even
population distribution of juveniles throughout a farm site
- LSS design ensures
proper morphological development
- Preserves the natural
- No individual man-handling of lobster juveniles
- Eliminates critical pelagic phase
- Compact light-weight design
- Cost efficient
The lobster juvenile incubator is specially
equipped with an injector head which ensures optimum flow and
distribution of juveniles and food. The unit has a filter that
prevents lobsters leaving the tank. Excess food is filtered out
from the tank ensuring high water quality. The incubator tank is
mounted in a bench and includes a lid.
Sea ranching management and logistics
Starting a project is an important step impacting for future
