The havline method
Faster – Fresher
The havline method represents significant and valuable innovation at several levels beyond reduced «time to market».
Havline slaughter and gut salmon directly on a combined processing and transportation vessel. The vessel transports the gutted fish from the pen-site at the Norwegian west coast to a new state-of-the art terminal in Hirtshals, where grading and packing is performed. By doing so Sekkingstad increases shelf life and reduces the carbon footprint significantly. At the same time, the company safeguards the animal welfare, reduce the risk of escape and therefore prevent biological contamination.
