DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 29, 2017) - LIG Assets, Inc. (OTC PINK: LIGA) (also known as the "Leader in Green Assets" or "LIGA") has entered into a Joint Venture Partnership with LIVE SHIP Global Seafood Logistics to utilize LIGA's and Robert Plarr's exclusive sustainable technologies and products to upgrade existing structures and construct new, state-of-the-art warehouses and distribution centers in conjunction with live seafood transportation systems across North America with plans to expand the partnership to projects in Australia and South East Asia that completely revolutionize how live seafood is stored and shipped worldwide.
LIGA's/Plarr's technologies utilizing Magnesium Oxide & Geo-Polymers that are toxic free compared to traditional materials and possess vastly superior mould, fungus and rot forming resistance. The materials withstand temperatures of 4,000 degrees and can be produced replicating the aesthetics of virtually any natural substance including polished marble and wood except that they are inexpensive and can last hundreds of years while dramatically improving the health and longevity of live seafood products by providing the materials for increased care of product at all points of the supply chain. The construction materials that have been used historically, primarily metal, wood and plastic are still currently being used in literally every aspect of seafood transportation and storage. Each present their own individual and costly problems for the global seafood industry -- such as durability, contamination potential, regular replacement/maintenance, and degradation from rot, fungus, use and various other environmental contact factors.
Live Ship has a worldwide exclusive agreement to transport Live Lobster and Live Snow Crab using patented technology to transport 25,000 lbs. of live seafood using specially designed 40' sea containers. These live seafood sea containers are designed to be transported by road, rail and vessel worldwide which greatly reduce transport rates, handling and carbon emissions. Using the recently released Traystor crates from BioNovations, Live Ship's live seafood containers clients will be able to have the complete supply chain of product from boat to plate worldwide. LIGA's inclusion will not only revolutionize the entire global seafood industry but change it forever thanks to the new partnership between LIG Assets and LIVE SHIP Global Seafood Logistics.

About LIVE SHIP, Global Seafood Logistics:
Live Ship Logistics in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada is revolutionizing the way live lobster and snow crab are shipped worldwide. Stress is the primary cause of poor health and mortality in live seafood -- Stress is introduced at each step in the supply chain and is caused by handling and environmental factors such as poor water quality, poor temperature control, and proximity to other seafood. Eliminating or minimizing stress from "catch to plate" reduces mortality, improves health, freshness, and taste, therefore increasing market value. Our proprietary supply chain system developed, by BioNovations, minimizes product stress to improve health and longevity while providing a system for care of product at all points of the supply chain.�This reduces total cost of live seafood distribution and increases market value by delivering a fresh, premium taste experience.
The BioNovations designed live seafood transport 40 ft. sea containers allow us the ability to ship seafood over long distances and extended periods of time, both over land and sea. BioNovations 40 ft. transport trailers and ocean faring sea containers minimize carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 90%, resulting in a much lower carbon footprint than traditional methods such as air freight. Up until now live seafood holding and transport systems came with an inherently high mortality rate. BioNovations systems are specifically designed to provide highly controllable environments and have significantly reduced mortality rates associated with long term storage and long haul transport. As a result, the cost of storing and shipping live seafood will greatly reduce the loss of life during transport, thereby maximizing the use of the targeted species and increasing the payload.
