Our automatic sea lice counter SpectraLice has been nominated for the 2019 Nor-Fishing Foundation Innovation Award.

Ecotone is one of three finalists selected by the jury from 30 applications submitted by tech companies all over the world. 

Degree of innovation a key factor
The Innovation Award goes to the company who, according to the jury, has developed the most innovative technology with the greatest potential for the industry.

“This is a prestigious award in the aquaculture industry, and we know the exhibitors at Aqua Nor take note of all the nominees, in addition to the winner. This nomination is a big boost in our efforts to introduce SpectraLice to more cages,” says Ecotone director and co-founder Ivar Erdal.

Award-winning salmon-lice counter
The automatic salmon-lice counter SpectraLice has already won a prestigious design award (in Norwegian), and it is currently in use at several fish farming installations (in Norwegian).

Visit our booth
We encourage everyone to visit our booth at Aqua Nor (F-568). We will bring SpectraLice to the fair and are always happy to discuss automatic sea lice counting.

“SpectraLice was developed in close collaboration with the aquaculture industry over the last three years. We come to Aqua Nor with the finished technology, ready for the commercial market,” Erdal concludes.
