A lineless, self-surfacing, lobster trap retrieval system that prioritizes the needs of lobstermen.
Helping fishers and right whales coexist
Give the North Atlantic right whales a chance at survival
Less than 400 North Atlantic right whales are left, with 85% showing entanglement scars
Give fishers an option that works for them on the boat, and in their pockets
LobsterLift is designed to be faster for the fishers when they are on the water compared to traditional methods while being at a price point that allows them to stay in business
We’ve been hard at work this summer, from Massachusetts to Maine. In June and July, we made trips to Bar Harbor, ME to stress test our enclosures both in deep water and for overnight deployments. This past week, we joined lobsterman Rob Martin as well as NOAA researchers Eric Matzen and Brian Galvez in Sandwich, MA. They were able to see the full LobsterLift system in action, hauling a three trap trawl in Cape Cod Bay. We are grateful for valuable feedback from each of them and to Rob for welcoming us aboard Resolve for the day.
