Both traditional fisheries and the aquaculture industry face challenges that call for efficient bird control. Despite efforts to reduce seabird mortality, thousands of albatrosses and other seabirds die every year as a result of bycatch in fisheries. In the fast growing aquaculture industry great amounts of animal life in one area like shellfish, crustaceans and fish will eventually attract predatory birds.In collaboration with SaveWave, Bird Control Group developed an innovative and highly specialized laser technology to easily and safely exclude sea ducks, seagulls, cormorants, herons and other nuisance birds from (shell)fish farms, fishing grounds and sea vessels.

Intensive use of extractive fishing is threatening important species and forces governments to impose temporary stoppages whilst the profitability of fishing fleets is decreasing and ship-owners are seeing their livelihoods threatened.
As a result of this and in order to satisfy the continually growing demand for fish to feed the world’s population, it has been necessary to breed different types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs in fish farms.
Fish larvae feed on multicellular microorganisms -Rotifera and Artemia-, which in turn require a balanced and natural feeding on microalgae. This is the only way to achieve healthy farmed fish which compare favourably with those found in the wild.
