Eco Lobster Condo

Eco Lobster-Condo is AQUABIOTECH’s exclusive line of equipment for the storage of live crustaceans.

”If you can keep pure, well oxygenated water flowing around each of the animals, they’re going to live much longer.” _ Words of wisdom from Canadian biologist Hélène Drouin, president of AQUABIOTECH INC, and specialist in the design and fabrication of closed-circuit tanks for the conservation of aquatic and marine life.  ”Furthermore, if you keep each animal segregated in chilled water, you can store quality lobster for at least three months, and possibly up to six months.”

ECO LOBSTER-CONDO: A SUREFIRE UNION OF COMMON SENSE WITH TECHNOLOGY

The ingenious design enables you to store lobster with ease in a surprisingly small footprint, while oxygen-laden water flows around each animal. With our mix of purging and long-term storage systems you are sure to keep you clients happy with quality product:  an investment that rapidly pays for itself. Our experienced team of biologists, engineers and technicians is well equipped to take your project from concept, whether a new or upgraded facility, through successful implementation.
