Zero-tolerance

R&D work done at FLS has always been based on fish welfare. Healthy fish makes good economic sense for the aquaculture industry.

We deal with the fish on their terms. Harm, stress and death should not occur.

FLS takes our part in the value chain seriously. We have therefore set ourselves a goal of zero-tolerance for harm to fish in the delousing process using FLS Caligus.

Biomass

FLS CALIGUS is one of the market's leading solutions for efficient salmon delousing which ensures fish welfare. Deloused fish experience minimal stress during the delousing process and re-feed the same day that delousing took place. The process therefore has no influence on biomass.

Fish welfare

Excellence in fish welfare
Fish welfare has always been the starting point for our development work. We deal with the fish on their terms. 

Fish welfare

Fish welfare has always been the starting point for our development work. We deal with the fish on their terms, as much as possible.
Our R&D team collaborated with veterinarians to develop our patented ejector and delousing line. In FLS CALIGUS, the fish are gently flushed with seawater, and the lice are collected so they are not released back into the sea. The fish are cleaned in a few seconds and not harmed in the process.

Profitable

Gentle handling causes very low mortality, so the fish will feed the same day that delousing occurred. This results in minimal loss to biomass, and combined with the good capacity of the delousing line, we can say with confidence that this is a profitable approach.
 

What do our customers say

Andreas Rabben
Shipowner - Eidsvaag AS
We developed feed cranes for several of our boats in cooperation with Flatsetsund Engineering.
They work well and gently move feed from the transport boat to the fleet.

Jan Eirik Nordseth
Managing Director - Pure Shipping / Eines AS
We discovered that the FLS delousing system handles fish gently, allowing them to feed immediately after processing, and they eat again within two days. This causes minimal loss of biomass.

Based on our assessments, Flatsetsund Engineering's solution is one of the gentlest systems for delousing on the market, making this an economically sound solution.
