What do APS do?

APS is an innovative start-up using photonic technology to delouse farmed salmon. Containment of sea lice is the biggest issue facing salmon farming.

Sea lice are parasites and feed off the salmon mucus, growing and reproducing rapidly. They damage the salmon health, leading to diseased fish and reduced profit for the farmer. If the sealice cannot be contained, the whole farm is at risk. APS brings together various domain experts to provide an innovative solution to a real industry problem. The outcome is a safe, efficient, fish-friendly treatment that provides the fish farmer with healthy lice-free fish.
