SkaMik is a mechanical salmon de-licer system developed by Geir Skarstad and Frode Mikalsen at SkaMik AS. The system works by using pressurized water and motorized brushes to remove the lice from the salmon in a gentle and environmentally friendly way, without the use of chemicals.
Summer 2016 HUGG was contracted by Moen Marin who has acquired SkaMik. The job HUGG got is to aid in further development of the de-licer system. Moen Marin is one of Norway’s largest supplier of gear to the aquaculture industry and has a strategy to professionalize the development of their product portfolio.
