The HSU stunner can be installed wherever there is a need to humanely stun fish, for any species, at any speed.
Fish are pumped aboard and stunned before being transported to the processing factory.
Fish are delivered live to the processing factory by ship and are stunned in the transport pipe.
Fish cages are brought to shore and the fish are pumped and stunned as they make the journey to the harvesting tubs.
SMOLT OR RUNT KILLING, & VACCINATIONS:
Often due to overproduciton, disease outbreak or jellyfish swarms, large numbers of fish may need to be killed quickly. Ace Aquatec has developed a smaller machine capable of stunning smolt and runt fish dead. These fish, which would not otherwise be humanely slaughtered, can be stunned dead at high speeds (12 tonnes per hour). The same machine may also be used for administering vaccinations by applying a different set of electrical perameters that render the fish unconscious. The fish remain unconscious and revive after 5-20 seconds (note: Ace Aquatec does not advocate using the machine for this application without full investigation of any long term effects on fish health).
