The data you need. Direct from the pen.

How Falcon Works

Controlling salmon lice populations through manual counting is time intensive, stressful to your stock, and can lead to errors. Manual counting only provides a view into a small fraction of your entire stock — one week at a time.

Built for extreme weather, Falcon is capable of continuously monitoring the sea lice status of your fish population. The system accurately detects, counts and tracks salmon lice levels with clarity and consistency, eliminating the need to manually handle and sedate salmon during lice counting — improving the overall fish welfare. Lice evaluations derived from Falcon’s high-resolution images are sent directly from the camera, to the cloud, to the control room.

The equipment is built with the farmer in mind for pen safety and robust hardware that can withstand extreme weather.

Light illuminates the top and bottom of the fish for visibility in all weather conditions.

Falcon System

Camera is triggered with a motion sensor to take a series of high resolution images as salmon swim by.

The best images are automatically selected and analyzed using artificial intelligence. Our proprietary lice counting algorithms are based on the evaluation of thousands of individual images of fish and lice which are then used to train the Falcon system.
