GenusWave designs and manufactures sound technologies that benefit both animals and people. Our first breakthrough, kalt Targeted Acoustic Startle Technology (TAST),, emits a sound that keeps predatory seals from salmon farms and fisheries – without harming the seals or the salmon.
Light-years more advanced than primitive acoustic deterrent devices (ADDs), TAST meets every requirement of the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and is the only acoustic deterrent approved by the influential and highly regarded Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC).
Our second breakthrough, Sea Lice Defence Technology (SLDT), emits a unique sound that interferes with the ability of sea lice to recognize and target salmon, stopping salmon from becoming a host. This specific sound disrupts the host identification and host attachment processes that sea lice must go through to complete their life cycle. SLDT will be available this summer.
TAST and SLDT have been proven to not harm seals or any marine mammals in any way.
TAST kan kalibreres til kun å påvirke målrettede rovdyrarter, inkludert seler.
Havet er støyforurenset. TAST gir en mer stille alternativ til primitive akustiske avskrekk enheter.
TAST and SLDT help fish farms minimize the financial costs of lost catch due to seal predation and sea lice infestation.
Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) har godkjent TAST for bruk på alle ASC sertifiserte oppdrett.
Unlike conventional ADDs, TAST provides long-term protection because seals won’t habituate to it.
Vi hjelper lakseoppdrettere å overholde MMPA (Marine Mammals Protection Act) og alle andre miljøregler.
GenusWave’s technologies don’t cause habitat exclusion or hearing damage in non-target species.
GenusWave was born from our passion for the sea and our desire to help the salmon industry. Our two breakthroughs, Targeted Acoustic Startle Technology (TAST) and Sea Lice Defence Technology (SLDT), can dramatically transform salmon farming and the coastal fishing industry.
Fornybar marin-energi prosjekter kan komme i konflikt med livet i sjøen og miljø i både anleggs- og driftsfasen. Ved å skape en stille, høyteknologisk lyd avstøter, kan TAST mildne denne konflikten, noe som er viktig med tanke på den voksende fornybar energi sektoren.
Hungry seals prey on farmed salmon, ravaging schools and stressing the captive fish. What is TAST, and how can it stop the damage?
As the implementation of the US Marine Mammal Protection Act approaches, salmon farmers and commercial fisheries need to prepare.
GenusWave scientists tested the long-term effectiveness of a deterrence system, harnessing the startle reflex in phocid seals at a marine salmon farm.
Deer-vehicle collisions are a serious threat to road safety, causing about 200 deaths per year and $1.1 billion in damages.
