Anybody know anything about building a lobster tank with a floating bottom?
Why would you? I know nothing about the fishery so thats why I ask.
What I meant to ask is what is the advantages of having a floating floor?
I have heard of them too, never saw one.
I guess the biggest problem would be figuring out the bouyancy of the bottom so the weight of the shrimp pushed it down.
How big is your tank?? What a bout a wire mesh bottom you could pull up and down??
Just thinking out loud. :?::?::?:
Steve, I've wanted to build one and came to a conclusion it is a impossablity. Since the weight of product is always changing , the floatation would either.. not lift or over lift and push the product right out of the holding tank. what I came up with is a crank up tank. A tank within a tank and pull the inner holding tank up as the product is culled or packed for shipping etc.Anybody know anything about building a lobster tank with a floating bottom?
