June 14, 2024  By Hatchery International staff

Fish welfare innovation company, Smir has entered into a contract with Norwegian salmon farming company, Lingalaks for delivery of the waterborne feeding system, Smirfeeder to their exhibition fish farming site Toska South in Norway.

The system will be able to supply feed for up to 14 pens and will be delivered ready on a new feed barge in the summer of 2024. 

Dialogue between the two companies has been ongoing and Lingalaks says it has gone through a thorough selection process to choose Smir. “We are therefore confident that we have found a solution that meets our needs, and that we have chosen an innovative and good technical solution that will ensure sustainable and stable production going forward,” said Georg Andrè Melcher, project manager at Lingalaks. 

The sales manager at Smir, Frode Rygh, said he’s pleased to be able to deliver Lingalaks a sustainable solution for efficient and gentle transport of feed. “We see the fact that they chose Smirfeeder for one of their exhibition fish farming sites as a great vote of confidence, and we look forward to the collaboration,” said Rygh.
