OSH utilises Ocean On Land Technology's Aquahive® product for culturing its juvenile clawed lobsters, which maximises survival during the juvenile phase. Applying intuitive aquaculture technology is one way that OSH is assisting with the sustainability of an iconic lobster species. 

European Clawed Lobster

The European lobster (Homarus gammarus) or common lobster, is a species of clawed lobster inhabiting sub-tidal shores from the eastern Atlantic Ocean from the Lofoten Islands in Norway to the Azores and Morocco, including the Mediterranean and parts of the Black Sea. It is closely related to the American lobster,
(H. americanus). The European lobster is a prized delicacy throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, with its succulent white flesh, and sweet, claw meat.
