An innovative aquaculture platform for spiny lobster farming and conversion of byproducts in unique highly valuable products
At LAGOSTA, we take great care in farming the European spiny lobster Palinurus elephas in a respectful manner. We have developed a sustainable marine aquaculture model that enables us to control every aspect of the production. This platform ensures optimal animal well-being, traceability and limited impact on the environment.
LAGOSTA byproducts (spiny lobster shells) are converted into chitosan for high value products with extensive applications in various industries including the biomedical field.
Beside commercial aspects, LAGOSTA is also actively setting up a series of sustainable, ecological and ethical programs with Governments and Foundations.
The company is now fully poised to leverage its existing assets at a large scale with the planned construction of an important production site. To foster such deployments, the company intends to secure a large round of financing in 2019.
