Lucky live lobsters and langoustine

Anyone getting a chance to visit the FishExpo at the AECC, Aberdeen this week can check out an innovative approach to solving a fishy logistical problem - how to transport fish out of water - well shellfish anyway!




Lobster Pod was designed by husband and wife team marine biologist Keith and Errin Todd - both with substantial experience of inshore fisheries and all things shellfish.




The Lobster Pod is a novel, patent pending live shellfish vivier system. It has been scientifically proven to increase survival to over 99%. The quality of the shellfish is improved by utilising a unique controlled atmosphere system which creates the optimum conditions for lobster, crab, langoustine and other shellfish species. The system is palletised to make road and container transport even more efficient.

They have have just launched the LobsterPod website with more information here:
