Lobster is a popular seafood specialty in North America. Lobster are traditionally caught in the wild and hauled to shore. They are also raised in hatcheries from egg to adult and allowed to mature under monitored conditions. Lobster meeting health and size requirements set by law are kept in a state of hibernation and then shipped live to commercial sellers. The ability to keep Lobster in a state of hibernation from the time they leave the hatcheries or oceans is controlled with water temperature. Hibernation is induced when the water temperature is lower than 40⁰F. Metabolic processes slow and the Lobster become lethargic. This is optimal for shipping purposes, and allows for the Lobster to be less stressed and live upon receiving. Once they are warmed back to between 40⁰F and 50⁰F. Normal metabolic rates return and the lobster are able to resume normal functions. The ability to maintain water temperatures in lobster holding tanks ensures proper health is maintained and mortality rates are kept to a minimum. Whaley products has the ability to provide chillers that support lobster hatcheries and holding tanks of all sizes and cooling requirements.
