This is a video about how lobsters are harvested and processed in South Australia for live export to China. In the first part of the video, Mark Denton, a professional rock lobster fisherman describes how the sustainability of the lobster fishery is ensured; compares and contrasts his work with farming any other form of livestock; shows the technology he uses; and illustrates the stages in the fishing process from placing the pots to selling the live lobsters to processors. In the second part, Andrew Laurie, a rock lobster processor and the owner of Sky Seafoods tells how and why the lobsters are graded and placed in temperature-controlled holding tanks. He describes his care of the live lobsters as 'a farm within a farm' using world's best practice. He points to the lobsters' advantage in the Chinese market due to their colour, strength and taste. The video lasts for 4:36 min.
