ASF has become a world leader in using sonic transmitters to monitor the movements of smolt as they descend rivers, and move offshore to grow, and to migrate towards ocean feeding grounds.
The issues related to farmed salmon impacts on wild Atlantic salmon has created a renewed interest in land-based aquaculture. ASF is partnering to further economic efficiencies and to further understanding of the system.
