Fighting SRS - Pincoy project in Chile

Through our own research we have identified field isolates which are being used for the development of a new vaccine, working on determine reservoirs, survival of the bacteria in sea water, screening broodfish and testing several vaccination strategies as well as QTL for SRS. We are currently running test with the new Pharmaq live vaccine and will start in Q3 a benchmark trial at the R&D Center in Colaco, to test the new custom made vaccine with other SRS vaccines available in Chile. Still, it is too early to tell if these vaccines are successful as the large fish is most at risk of SRS.


iFarm – Cermaq towards individual-based farming

The sensors of iFarm have computer vision, which recognizes each individual based on the dot pattern of the salmon.

Hence, iFarm represents a technological leap in the development of cage farming.
