Falcon works around the clock — so you don’t have to.

MSD Animal Health understands that sea lice is one of the greatest hurdles to the success of your business. In 2016, the total costs related to treatments and mortality were around $2.6 billion.* However, the costs go beyond treatment expenses alone. Salmon lice infestations can also lead to production and mortality issues, expensive fines, and even a cap on your allowed farm biomass.

Of course, the answer to early detection of sea lice isn’t manually counting more often. It’s automated monitoring with the Falcon sea lice system.

Artificial intelligence — right in the pen.

How Falcon AI Works

With continuous 24/7 monitoring, the Falcon sea lice system captures and collects high-resolution images of thousands of salmon in your stock. Our proprietary machine learning algorithm then reviews and annotates those images to deliver results that are stored in the cloud — so that you can access them from wherever you are.

Plus, with our team of annotators continually analyzing images to train and improve the machine learning algorithm, the artificial intelligence in your pen keeps getting smarter and smarter over time. This makes your investment more valuable to you as you work to identify risk and take early action to protect the welfare of your stock.

Real-time decision making backed by science.

Built for extreme weather conditions, the always-on Falcon sea lice camera from MSD Animal Health provides 24/7 reporting that helps you make more informed decisions about the welfare of your fish. With Falcon in your pens, you’ll have access to the insights you need for rapid, real-time decision making.
