Individualized Aquaculture

Establishes a health record for each fish

BioSort iFarm

BioSort iFarm

BioSort iFarm is a system in development that will monitor the health, lice and growth for each fish in a pen. Individual fish can be removed, for example infection carriers or lice collectors. Only fish with needs will be treated, enabling a shift from group-based operations to Individualized care.


Fish ID  identification of each individual fish

Health Record

Tracks health development for each fish


Sea lice detection on the entire fish


Tracks growth development or weigh loss


Removes individual fish, e.g. infection carriers

Data Analysis

Population analysis and feed optimization

About Us

Our mission is to create sensor-based solutions for optimization of fish resources. We want to replace manual inspection and sampling by automated processes and monitoring derived from modern production processes. Our solutions will manage fish on an individual level, creating value and increased sustainability through increased fish welfare and higher production yields.


The founders of BioSort have a collective experience of over 40 years of product development and technology management from Tomra Systems ASA. The team being build will consist of highly skilled software, computer vison, optics, robotics and mechanical design specialists.


Machine vision and mechatronics design integrated in challenging environments, is the core competence of BioSort.


BioSort was founded in 2010 based on the idea of using machine vision and sorting to separate escaped farmed salmon and wild salmon.

iFarm fiskevelferd

Fiskevelferd kontrolleres ved småskala testing av iFarm

Olai Einen, direktør for forskning og utvikling i Cermaq, forklarer i denne artikkelen hvordan iFarm vil være det store gjennombruddet for fiskevelferd og hvordan FishWell vil bli brukt i denne sammenheng. Kjernen ligger i å etablere en helsejournal for hver fisk hvor iFarm følger velferdsindikatorer på hvert individ i merden. I tillegg kan man skille ut fisk som er syk eller som lider. Man unngår også å behandle frisk fisk, i motsetning til dagens gruppebaserte behandlinger for hele merden.
