Promising test results
The AKVA Subsea Feeder has been tested by the aquaculture company, SinkabergHansen, and initial tests show that the fish exhibit good growth and welfare because sea lice infestation is reduced. Experience so far shows that the fish remain by the feeding point.
Further tests will be carried out over the coming year. The tests will include the use of deep underwaterlights in combination with the AKVA Subsea Feeder, and tests will be carried out in facilities at several locations along the coast. The hypothesis is that the lights will keep the fish deep during the night and that the AKVA Subsea Feeder will keep the fish deep during the day. The tests are financed by FHF and will be executed in cooperation with Havforskningsinstituttet. The results of the tests will be publicly accessible.
