The husbandry & harvesting machine


Machinery for efficient operations with minimum use of resources!

It’s custom-designed for Smart Farm’s unique farming system, an excellent tool for efficient operation with a minimum use of resources – replacing most of the traditional labour involved with farming.

The machine may be delivered as a pure cleaning / husbandry machine or also to harvest rope-grown species like mussels or seaweed.

In operation the machine is closed over the Unit, cleaning, husbandry or harvesting operations can then commence.

The machine’s main functions:

  1. Collector-cleaning ahead of new spat settlement
  2. Cage cleaning
  3. Oyster separation
  4. Control density of spats
  5. Harvest spat (once or several times pr. settlement)
  6. Reduce predators/fouling: Starfish, Tunicates, barnacles, annelid worm, other fauna and flora.
  7. Efficient & gentle harvesting of on-growing species

It allows gentle harvesting, as the biomass are pumped in plenty of water.

One single, fast operation with minimum labour.
