There is a large potential in increased export of seafood from Norway and one of the categories that yet is little explored is live crustaceans. Transport of living animals requires extra precautions regarding the health and well-being of the animal. In this study, Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) were chilled with refrigerated sea water, while transported in a truck. A mobile RSW system with CO2 as refrigerant was used to provide chilled water below 5 °C. The temperatures in the chilling water were stable during the entire transport and the water had good oxygen saturation and stable pH-values, which is important for the welfare and survival rate of the lobsters. The survival rate of the crustaceans was good after transportation, and overall, the study showed that there is a potential for increased transportation of live lobster, without limiting the welfare of the animals.
