Research & Development 
  
Through scientific research and constant focus on product development together with our clients
we create the future.
 
Our own highly skilled engineers and design team continuously generate ideas for improvements
and new designs, but often the ideas come from the fishermen themselves, through our close and
valuable contact directly to the ship on the fishing grounds.
 
The ideas are then being tested on computer simulators, following by scale testing in our local flume
tank at the North Sea Centre in Hirtshals.
 
Another new angle to our comprehensive R&D programme is our group’s latest contribution towards
an investment of highly sophisticated undersea filming equipment, which enables us to study both
active and passive gear.
 
Final test is done by skilled fishing masters at sea, when fishermen using our nets haul big bags of
fish in trouble free fishing.
