    Customer challenge

     

    According to the Norwegian Research Council, sea lice have become one of the salmon industry's biggest challenges in recent years. Delousing now accounts for up to 10% of production costs of Norwegian farmed salmon. What’s more, sea lice are becoming increasingly resistant to drugs, making the problem even more acute.

     

    The right lighting 

     

    Philips LED lighting helps accelerate growth, leading to shorter production times and reduced exposure to sea lice. In addition, the downward directed light beam encourages fish to stay low in the water column, reducing contamination by sea lice and cutting down the number of treatments needed.
