Introducing the Ostrea Spin Flotation System
We are delighted to announce that Triskell Seafood are the sole Irish Distributors for the new Ostrea Spin system from French company OstréA’tlantic.
The unique design has been trialed successfully in France and is now available to buy here in Ireland.
The set-up is essentially a ‘barrel frame’ which rotates around a central axis on your trestle. Floats attached to either side of the frame allow it to turn with the tide. Wave goodbye to backache. Gone are the seemingly endless days of lifting, shaking and turning your oyster bags by hand. The Ostréa Spin system will do all of that for you, and the robust aluminium design ensures a lifespan of up to 20 years!
The constant spinning forces the bags to open out and adopt the shape of the barrel allowing the oysters to tumble freely with the tide. Even without the use of a booster you get increased water flow through the bags. The constant movement knocks the frill off your oysters and ensures they develop stronger shells with a deeper cup shape, the meat quality is better too.
What Is Required?
A standard trestle will hold 5 barrel frames. However, as the barrels rotate around a central axis on the trestle some alteration to your existing trestles would first be required in order to install the system. Alternatively we can arrange to have trestles made up to plan to allow the system to work. Full instructions are supplied with the system to allow you to put it together yourself should you prefer.
A full pallet will hold 45 barrel frames and fittings. We can guarantee that within a few months onsite you will see the benefits of the system. Both in terms of the freeing up of your time from laboriously turning bags all day, and in the improvement you will see in the growth of your oysters.
