Line-Less Crab Raft & Line-Less Lobster Raft

The design of our Line-Less gear is essentially the same as what crab and lobster fisherman have always used. We have simply taken the countless feet of lines and buoys and replaced them with inflatable bag technology. Our design relies on simple pressure and inflation.

Marine Mammal Collision Avoidance Project

We are working on a comprehensive system to prevent ship strikes of North Atlantic Right Whales that utilizes a 20’x30’ flag with mast on a movable buoy to help boaters communicate when a marine mammal is nearby.
