Direct costs related to the handling of biofouling in a typical fish farm with eight cages often amount to NOK 4-5 million annually. Remora lowers overall costs and improves margins even more compared to traditional high pressure washing. If each cage is cleaned about 15 times during a production cycle, Remora will provide a saving of 120 hours of work per cage per year.
If we imagine that always clean net reduces fish mortality from 10% to 8% per cage, this will on average give the farmer about 4000 more salmon per postponement to offer the market. If we also assume a kilo price of NOK 60, this will result in an additional income of approximately NOK 1 million.
