In cooperation with Tanafisk we have installed a dual FRS camera pole in the Tana River. The humpback salmon mainly enters the rivers every other year, where they reproduce and die. The system will be used to verify the efficiency of the guide fence so that we are ready for the 2023 season where we expect a large invation of the humpack / pink salmon.
The humpback salmon is an invasive species in Norway, and the problem is spreading from the northern parts of Norway from Russia. Local fishing associations and river authorities have done a heroic job in 2021 and caught tens of thousands of fish based on volantary work.
Mohn Technology is working on a automatic fish trap that is based on our machine vision and underwater technology experience. We hope the system will be able to stop the spread of the invasive species and protect our own wild salmon, while also generating value from the catch. More info to come!
