The Lobster Pod is an innovative live shellfish storage and transportation system.

It has been scientifically proven to increase the survival rate of shellfish during transit to 99% from an industry average of 85%.

Lobster Pod, based in Fife, Scotland creates the optimum conditions for your lobster, crab and langoustine. The transport mode uses a controlled atmosphere system (including mist) replacing the need for large amounts of seawater. A lighter load saves fuel and reduces carbon emissions.  The water is chilled and filtered meaning the animals’ metabolism is slowed down so they produce less waste and are less stressed.  We use the full cubic capacity of your vehicle increasing the amount of produce delivered and reducing the waste.

Short, medium or long term storage for live shellfish

The Lobster Pod can also be used for short term storage at the quayside or for medium or long term storage for seasonal markets. In storage mode the system is flooded and extra filtration capacity can be added. The Lobster Pod storage model is ideal for hospitality to hold shellfish for your restaurant ensuring optimum quality and taste. An onboard version of the Lobster Pod can be utilised to hold the shellfish in seawater reducing stress on the animals caused by wind and sun damage.

Traceable and pallestised system

The whole Lobster Pod is palletised making it quicker and easier to load and unload. Shellfish are held in customised fish boxes making traceability possible and ‘Fish and Chip’ telemetry can be added ensuring provenance of your shellfish from catch to plate. Shellfish are happier and healthier and therefore tastier for the consumer.

Worldwide shellfish market

The worldwide market of lobster, crab, prawns, scallop and other shellfish species is over $40 billion and growing. Of this an average of 15% is wasted due damage and stress during transportation. We have the solution.
