This video, uploaded by 草地狀元 on November 13, 2019, is not a lobster farm but rather, a Taiwanese live seafood (lobster) central holding and distribution RAS facility.
The title “Lobster Farm 2” is not accurate because this facility is really a commercial RAS holding-distribution facility for the Australian Western Rock Lobster in Taiwan and not a lobster farm.
This is the YouTube link to the video
With a subtitle that says:
Have you ever eaten live lobster? The artificial reproduction technology of lobster has not been broken through. The shrimp seedlings are precious by fishing, and the breeding technology is difficult. The salinity of seawater is the key! [Aquaculture is so interesting]
This is real lobster farming of Panulirus ornatus (Fabricius, 1798) in the Philippines… low-cost small scale fed with sea urchin obtained from the vicinity of the coast.
No centrifugal pump. No ring blower or roots blower. No air lines and diffusers. No fishmeal or soybean meal. No fertilizers. No probiotics. No antibiotics. No hormone. No reuse seawater, just natural seawater that is never dosed with baking soda or agricultural lime. No need for mass algal tanks. No need for syringes and microscopes. No clearing and digging of the mangrove forest.
Nothing. Just nets and bamboo poles that can be dismantled anytime plus fresh seawater.
Livelihood for our humble coastal Filipino folks.
