“Stingray now has the muscle to follow up on both the East Coast and West Coast,” says CEO.
Oslo-based lice-killing laser supplier Stingray Marine Solutions is set to expand its operations into Canada.
The company is preparing to expand its business to both the east and west coasts of the country, General Manager, John A. Breivik announced on LinkedIn on Friday.
“Canada, like Norway, is well-positioned for the further development of sea farming, with a high priority on sustainability and fish welfare,” wrote Breivik.
A key feature of Stingray’s technology is its image-based detection system, which employs a laser beam to eliminate sea lice as fish swim past. This method significantly reduces the need for chemical treatments, offering an eco-friendly solution to a challenge that causes annual losses of about $1 billion to the global salmon industry.
“Stingray is now clearly leading the way in Norway… And we have ambitions to do so in other salmon farming countries as well,” said Breivik.
