We choose fishermen who use sustainable practices and take care of their catch and the habitat. By using our Lobster Pod system onboard their boat the shellfish are kept in ideal conditions. The lobsters are graded by size and quality into customised fish boxes. We only buy the very best quality shellfish and ensure it is handled with care. A healthy and happy lobster is tastier!
The shellfish is transported to our base near Edinburgh using the Lobster Pod vivier system. This keeps the water filtered and chilled to ensure a stress-free journey for the shellfish. Our friends call it the lobster limousine! We then move the customised fish boxes into our holding system which is flooded with fresh seawater. As the shellfish is already pre-graded by size we do not need to over-handle them.
We have complete traceability with our system and can tell you who caught your lobster, where and when. With 85% of native shellfish being exported and many restaurants using inferior Canadian lobsters it can be hard to source good quality, UK lobsters.
Most shellfish has been through at least five different buyers before it reaches the fishmongers. From fishermen to merchants to fishmongers to chefs the quality deteriorates over time and the provenance is hard to prove. If you are a foodie and want to know where your food comes from and be assured of the quality and superior taste place an order for Lobster Pod shellfish today.
