Lice skirts

Our lice skirts are an extremely effective way of keeping salmon lice out of cages. We ensure that the salmon stay healthy all year round, by providing two different types of lice skirt.

NWP’s lice skirts are specially designed to keep the lice away, while ensuring that the salmon enjoy optimum conditions all year round. We do this by offering our classic lice skirt and our new permeable skirt.

Two different types

We offer to different types of lice skirt. The NWP Extra-Strong Lice Skirt and the NWP Permeable Skirt.

The NWP Extra-Strong Lice Skirt is an impermeable lice skirt which has been developed for the tough Norwegian sea conditions. We recommend the use of this lice skirt in winter, because the tarpaulin is impermeable and therefore stronger. In summer, we recommend our new product, the NWP Permeable Skirt. That is because this lice skirt allows fresh water to enter continuously. In summer, the sea is warmer and the oxygen level lower, so you need a continuous supply of freshwater with a high oxygen level. If the oxygen level is low, the fish will not thrive and it will not take in sufficient nutrients. This is extremely important in terms of production.

That is why we recommend the NWP Extra-Strong Lice Skirt in winter, and the NWP Permeable Skirt in summer. In some locations, where weather conditions permit, aquaculture operators may be able to use the permeable skirt all year round.

Benefits of the NWP Extra-Strong Lice Skirt

  • Extremely strong fabric
  • Can cope with rough weather conditions
  • Requires little maintenance
  • Keeps the salmon lice out, even in winter when the lice larvae are small

Benefits of the NWP Permeable Skirt

  • Ensures optimum conditions for salmon in summer
  • Maintains a stable water temperature
  • Provides an optimum oxygen level resulting in stable production

How the lice skirt works

Salmon lice live down to depths of 10 metres. Installing a lice skirt that is 10 metres deep keeps salmon lice out of the cages.

As well as protecting the fish from salmon lice, the skirt also protects them from other unwanted particles, and reduces other contamination inside the skirt.
