Importance of fish welfare
Safe and gentle sealice treatment
Sea Farm Innovations have developed a new system, to make sealice treatment safer, faster and better. SFI System is a new innovative patented system, that has been developed by Sea Farm Innovation, in close cooperation with salmon farmers. The main focus for the SFI System has from start been fish welfare, to make sure that as few salmon perish during sealice treatment as possible.
This patented innovative system is the first on the market, where treatment is in full control. There is no harmfull chemical or heat treatment.
SFI System is inspired by the salmons natrual behaviour, which minimizes any unwanted side effectes from the treatment.
The SFI System has the benefit, that it can be used in connection with all kinds of fish pump systems. Therefore the system can always be used with the newest and most gentle pump techonologies on the market.

Short treatment time
SFI System is the first system to offer 90% efficiency in a treatment short treatment time of only 0,2 seconds. The salmon is only moved a short distance through the whole onboard treatment system. Keeping the treatment time as low as possible has been key, to ensure gentle treatment and minimal stress.
With the innovative patented process test results have shown an average of 90% efficiency in including sealice in all growth stages.
The SFI System has been developed over the course five years. Tests have been made during all phases of the delvelopment, to make sure that the system is efficiant, has high capacity and has as little inpact on the fish as possible.
The goal was to make a treatment, that did not affect the natural environment. Therefore chemical and freshwater treatments were out of the question straight from the beginning.
SFI System does not use tempered water, which makes the system much more Green compared to heat treatment.
