Killer whale problems in fisheries?
The Orca Saver
The Orca Saver is a solution, which we have designed specifically to keep killer whales at a safe distance from longline vessels. The Orca Saver uses (ultrasonic) sound signals, which are emitted through underwater transducers in an omnidirectional manner. The device is powered by the onboard power supply on the fishing vessel and needs to be place under water by a crane, when killer whales interfere with the lines. Sound signals are updated continuously, making it possible to adapt to specific regions or circumstances. The electronics inside the Orca Saver are developed by Stanmax Electronics.
