Lumarine produces robust cleaner fish for delousing salmon in the sea cages in Atlantic salmon farms. Cleaner fish are the leading biological solution for ridding the salmon industry of its biggest inhibitor; the salmon lice. The cleaner fish in question is the lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus) and the company aims to become the lead producer of both biomass and quality of these fish.

Sea lice is an inhibitor and a considerable expense for the salmon industry but also an environmental concern for the wild salmon and trout. The product from Lumarine hence promotes both healthy sea food and mitigates environmental issues for the wild salmon and trout.

Lumarine aims to become the leading producer of cleaner fish throughout the production area of Atlantic salmon farming, regardless of species.
