Seafarming Systems develops both closed and partially closed fish cage technology. In which water from the upper layers where harmful algae, salmon lice and other microorganisms are located, does not enter the cage. At the same time, the cage is supplied with abundant circulation of deep water.
Fish cage culture systems with sludge collection solve an important environmental problem. providing an opportunity to use locations that are currently not suitable due to weak currents. Available areas for farming will increase dramatically and production can be multiplied many times over. Sludge collection provides the opportunity for a real circular economy where valuable minerals such as phosphorus can be recycled and sludge becomes a resource, such as fertilizer and biogas.
When salmon lice, algae and other harmful microorganisms are kept out of the cage, and delousing no longer is necessary, it has a positive effect on the fish’s welfare. With plenty of fresh water flowing through the cage, and the water flow trims the salmon, the result can be improved fish health and faster growth. The fillet quality also increases, with better colouring, lower fat percentage and firmer fillets.
Escape-proof fish cages can hold a larger number of fish. Good water supply and water circulation provide a basis for higher stick density. Improved water quality with circulating currents to trim the fish, can provide faster growth. Large cages with higher density, more fish per cage, automated operations and without the need for delousing result in greater productivity. With sludge collection, fallow time can be reduced.
Seafarming Systems align with UN’s sustainable development goals by developing fish farming systems that facilitate large scale growth in sustainable seafood production. Like the closed aquaculture facility Aquantum Leap. Salmon is a good and healthy source of proteins that can be produced in an sustainable manner, while taking care of our oceans and their biodiversity
Our closed and semi-closed fish farms are stable steel constructions with integrated solutions for sorting and delivery of fish. It provides simpler and safer automated operations and reduces the need for support vessels. This entails positive changes in working conditions and HSE.
