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 members left, and 85% show 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
In April we welcomed aboard new team member Will Carome and continued with testing of devices in Bar Harbor, Maine. While the devices performed as hoped, our engine did not. With plans to pressure test devices out to 250 ft depth cut short, we were grateful that this US Coast Guard response boat was nearby and brought us safely back to shore
The team had successes testing the full LobsterLift system with integrated acoustics out to 152 ft depth. We're looking forward to pushing the system further when we get back on the water later this Spring.
