A little lesson in history…

A homarium is a life system for shellfish. In Belgium, around 1975 a company was founded to build these life systems for shellfish. The company was named Homarium and has managed to adapt the company name to a product name (the word homarium is the main Dutch dictionary, the Dikke Van Dale).

Due to a chilled and filtered, closed water circuit, the animals are stored in optimal conditions. This is in a fresh or seawater environment. In many restaurants, fishshops and supermarkets a homarium can be found. On the continent it is a tradition that you can pick out the lobster of your choice.

Present times…

Homarium has reached the level of market leader in the Benelux in life systems for shellfish. Experience and specialisation in construction and filter techniques has resulted in a stable and well build system, adapted to the present trends in design.

The future…

Homarium wants to hold the gained leader position and will continue to innovate and specialise.
Also in the future, Homarium will be your trustworthy and stable partner.
