Seafood Security AS was founded in 2010. Its vision is to provide comprehensive services in biomass control and breach management systems for the global aquaculture industry. The company's vision is to offer sustainable, “green” technology to provide operators and stakeholders with full protection of their aquatic biomass assets while meeting stricter rules and regulations aimed at minimizing the industry’s impact on the environment.
The biomass management solution is based on injected capsules in fish that allows for tracking, counting and immobilizing fish in case of breach. The capsules are tracked via pen-mounted sonars and integrated with GSM technology for immediate detection and activation. The technology is patented.
