Seabirds depredate a significant amount of fish from sea pens, as well as mussels from shellfish farms. Besides the economic impact, this is an environmental issue as aquaculture farms are often authorized to cull problematic birds. Both for the safety of seabirds and for the successful operation of aquaculture farms, harmless seabird deterrents are crucial installations.
Fiskevegn has partnered with Bird Protection Group to offer the Agrilaser Autonomic laser deterrent for aquaculture farms. The autonomous laser is installed on the aquaculture farm or on the shore in the vicinity. Our support staff is able to program the lasert to automatically scan the farm area with bird-safe laser beams, and can provide user training for the operators to program the system themselves or to control it manually via web interface when so desired. The laser system can be installed individually, or in combination with powerful zoom surveillance cameras (also remote controlled) and long-range acoustic deterrents.
