According to MANA, the vessel “MARTIN SÆLE”, the first Live Fish Carrier with the capacity of 1000 m3 of volume of water and in presence of representatives of the owner of the vessel, the Norwegian company Salmon Star AS, has been launched.
This Live Fish Carrier, with 50 meters length and 12,6 meters beam will operate in the Shetland Islands, where she will transport young and adult fish between different farms along the coast, and also transporting to and from the in-land fish factories and farms. She is a technologically advanced vessel and will be able to accommodate up to 7 crew members; but due to her high degree of automation, she will be operated only by 4 persons.
