Finalists for the Nor-Fishing Innovation Award

The finalists for the Nor-Fishing Innovation Award are now published. The three finalists were chosen from 9 nominated companies. 

Nor-FishingThe Nor-Fishing Foundation reports an impressive development in the fisheries industry with regards to vessels, gear and equipment for quality handling of fish. Today's focus is in large part on sorting the catch, limiting the catch. environment and sustainable development of fisheries nationally and internationally.  

Chariman of the board, Liv Holmefjord, is happy with the quality of this year's applications for the Innovation Award 2016. proposal for three finalists have been submitted to the Board of the Nor-Fishing foundation. 

 

These are the finalists to the Award:

 

Institute of Marine Research (IMR), Bergen

 IMR is implementing a project where catch control is tested through different adaptions to the net of the so-called “Danish seine”. The objective is to catch only the amount of fish that the vessel is licenced to catch and has the capacity to handle. This is important to the fishermen as well as fish buyers with regard to quality and price, as well as health, environment and safety considerations. The limitation of the catch is achieved by having openings at the side of the net, which let excess fish out when the catch limit has been reached. It is an important objective to achieve higher survival (live catch) both for the fish caught and for the fish that is returned to the sea.

 

 

Scantrol Deep Vision AS, Bergen

Deep Vision is being developed as an alternative and supplemental method in relation to today’s method, based on acoustics and experience, for monitoring the catch by the use of stereographic pictures from the trawl. A 3D modelling of the fish gives the possibility of determining the species and length, which in turn allows species sorting in the trawl and a more efficient catch from the point of view of market price, quota control and reduced by-catch. The technology can also make important contributions to a more ethical fishing and environmentally acceptable management of ocean resources. The system is expected to have a major impact on international marine research as well as commercial fishing operations.

 

 

Selfa Arctic AS, Sandtorg

Selfa Arctic has developed «the world’s first» electrically propelled fishing vessel in cooperation with Siemens/Trondheim and with Corvus in Canada as supplier of the batteries. The Norwegian Maritime Authority has participated in order to develop a new set of regulations to authorize such vessels. The energy use is reduced by 40 – 60% compared to diesel operations. The operations are silent and without vibration, exhaust or particle emissions. A diesel generator is installed in order to give the vessel greater security. In addition to the diesel generator, which produces electricity, research on fuel cells/hydrogen, energy from sunshine, wind, and the vessel’s movement is also being undertaken.
