At Camanchaca, sustainability is key to preserving the company’s business over time and fulfilling its mission to feed the world from the ocean. In order to achieve year-round production in a sustainable way, Camanchaca has looked for innovative ways to use light for increased growth and reduced maturation.
The right lighting
Camanchaca implemented a specific lighting strategy for their on-growing sea farm at Forsyth by using the Philips LED lighting system. By adapting the light during the day according to natural lighting conditions, fish was less stressed and grew faster and healthier.
Lighting in aquaculture
The Philips innovative LED solution was installed at Sjøtroll Havbruk to control parr-smolt transformation and improve survival rate of Atlantic salmon after sea transfer.
GIFAS was the first location to prove the benefits of intelligent Philips lighting Aquaculture LED solutions for the salmon industry. Working in collaboration with Lerøy Seafood, Philips showed that proper LED lighting technology increased growth and welfare, while reducing production costs and supporting sustainable development of the salmon industry.
Lingalaks recently started using Philips LED lighting to produce salmon in a new and more sustainable way. Next to improved salmon production, Lingalaks sees the potential for reducing the number of sea lice treatments.
