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.
