Feb 21 – Ronja Islander

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > Ship of the Week > Feb 21 – Ronja Islander

Grieg Seafood’s newest vessel, the Ronja Islander, completed construction in Norway in late 2019, and was custom built to address some of BC’s salmon farming challenges, including sea lice and safe fish handling during live transfers to farms. The vessel was designed using input from our stakeholders and Indigenous partners. In addition to its state-of-the-art removal treatments for sea lice, the process features 100% capture of the detached lice which will be disposed on land. The CAD $40 million wellboat will operate on both coasts of Vancouver Island, servicing 16 of Grieg Seafood’s salmon farms.
