Field testing

& proof

During the initial stages of engineering and design, the newly formulated plastic trap passed, and in most cases exceeded the engineering expectations in the simulations and software testing. A great amount of time and effort was spent on research, design, and engineering before proceeding to the patent stages.

Once the design was patented it immediately went to full-scale, hands-on prototype field-testing.

With the full support of DFO (Department of Fisheries and Oceans) a Scientific / Experimental Lobster Fishing Licence was issued for field-testing to prove in real time that these new plastic traps would indeed catch lobster.

Like-for-like testing was conducted using a plastic trap in conjunction with a wire trap.

Two separate trawls were made with two traps on each, one wire and one plastic. Each of these 2 trawls was set in a different location. All traps were baited identically with the same bait type and quantity of bait. Testing was conducted in various locations, water depths and environmental conditions on a regular basis over a 2-month period.

In all cases the plastic traps caught as many, or more, harvestable lobster then the wire traps.

The data speaks for itself.
