How important is the equipment?
Choosing the right equipment is extremely important when it comes to fish welfare, waste and profitability. Repeated handling and treatment increases mortality and impairs fish health.
In 2016 the total waste in Norway amounted to 53 million salmon. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority indicates that approx. 40% of the waste was due to handling. This is direct loss for breeders and shipowners.
Cflow wants to help its customers reduce waste related to handling. We therefore work actively on creating equipment that minimises handling stress, handling time and handling frequency.
Increasingly, focus is being directed towards improved utilisation of residual raw material and reducing waste to increase profitability. Particularly the utilisation of salmon weakened as a result of handling has received a lot of attention. This applies both in connection with transport and after delousing.
How does Cflow work to strengthen our customer’s profitability?
We help you to make the right choice and select equipment based on the desired areas of application, optimal placement of equipment on board for the gentlest treatment, and assist with professional knowledge that safeguards your values in the best possible way.

Our team of engineers and biologists continuously work on research and development in order to offer the best solutions to our customers. We want to be an equipment supplier that develops innovative solutions that provide reliable operations, the gentlest handling and satisfying the requirements for appropriate cleaning.
Cflow offers customised, dependable systems before fish handling systems that allow full monitoring, control and logging throughout the whole process.
Here are some examples on systems Cflow deliveres that can contribute to increased profitability in your company.
One solution is to include an on-board slaughterhouse to your fish handling system. These can be placed on both wellboats, service vessels and barges. The weak fish gets pumped to the slaughterhouse and delivered slaughtered to the slaughterhouse on land. This way you reduce wastage, and you will not have to pay to get the fish tossed.
Hydroflow Live-Fish Pump
Cflow has, together with Hydrolicer Production and PG Flow Solutions, developed a new, water driven fish pump that increases the fish welfare when handling the fish. The fish is led through the pump in a straight line with no movable parts. This reduces the time spent inside the pump and thereby the entire handling period. The Hydroflow Live-Fish Pump is developed for an average fish size of 6 kg+ and is the most gentle fish pump on the market.
