LAGOSTA and the CRBM solidify their pooling of expertise for the development of a first international innovation:

Rimouski, November 02, 2017 – During the BioMarine 2017 conference, the Marine Biotechnology Research Center (CRBM) and LAGOSTA signed, in the presence of Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Prime Minister of Quebec, Mr. Philippe Couillard, a new research and development agreement.

The supported project, based on coproducts from spiny lobster farming, consists in carrying out development work on a laboratory scale which may one day lead to products with high added value.

According to Christophe Maier, President of LAGOSTA, “we are exploring this phase of investigations of valorization of our coproducts with a first choice partner who was able to convince us, thanks to its experience and know-how, in the fields that we target“.

“The first contacts between LAGOSTA and CRBM were initiated during the October 2015 BioMarine conference in Wilmington, North Carolina. Since then, exchanges with LAGOSTA have accelerated and have resulted in applied research in marine biotechnology”, explains Guy Viel, General Director of CRBM.
