British Virgin Islands; Spiny Lobster Farm

 
Venulum, a private wealth management company based in the British Virgin Islands, has successfully managed to collect wild spiny lobster juveniles in commercial quantities.  Giles Cadman, chairman of Venulum, said it took two years to perfect the collection process.  He thinks the company will be capable of replicating it in the Caribbean, Australia and Asia.  Cadman said, “The numbers are very impressive, indicating that settlement is spatially uniform and that collection systems perform equally well at depth as on the surface,” so the entire collection process could be done underwater and away from boat traffic.
 
Experimental storage systems have been deployed in favorable, deep locations in the hope that they will be useful for holding juveniles while the farm infrastructure is completed.  If effective, Venulum hopes the storage system will reduce the cost and duration of farming operations.
 
A lobster farm has been built on the island of Tortola, the largest island in the British Virgin Islands, and it should be fully operational once hurricane protection has been completed early in 2009.  The Venulum management team has also approved the construction of a mold for the large-scale fabrication of [growout?] tanks.  The first market-size lobsters are expected in 18 months.
 
The collection and farming system is based on research done by Rob Power, Director of Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries, in conjunction with the World Fish Center.  Caribbean Sustainable Fisheries plans to work with local communities on small-scale lobster farming operations that offer opportunities to fishermen whose wild resource has been depleted to the point that it is no longer profitable.
