The industry's motivation is to have better control over the water quality, and especially to avoid the problem with salmon lice.
Development of technology for autonomous, bio-interactive and high quality data acquisition from aquaculture net cages
Monitoring algae can prevent fish losses
A new simulation tool may prevent damage to fish during delousing.
Looking into how salmon lice are spread between fish farms
Chile’s problems with salmon lice in its fish farms are so great that the country is seeking help from its competitor, Norway.
