How does a processboat work?

During loading of salmon at the fish farm, the fish is pumped on board and into a pool. Here it instinctively swims against the water flow and is channeled into a machine where it gets a blow in the head followed by a jumper between the gills. It then appears on a control table where it bleeds before being directed to storage tanks with refrigerated UV-purified seawater that holds 0.5 degrees Celsius. This process takes place at a speed of 240 fish per minute.

Livestock companies such as Marine Harvest, SalMar, Lerøy Seafood and Firda are companies that have taken measures aimed at bleeding on the edge of the fish farm. In the future, process boats will be an important contribution to:
– Increase the reputation of the aquaculture industry.
– Reduce waste
– Reduce the risk of transport
– Get green light in the region
In total, this will contribute to a more sustainable development in the industry.
