SeaGuard Acoustic Seal Deterrent

The SeaGuard 2-channel Acoustic Seal Deterrent is a proven ‘must have’ for aquaculture producers and fish farms.  Using the renowned Airmar DB+ II projector which has been modified and redesigned with approval, performance and lower power consumption.test-projector.jpg

The SeaGuard does not use sound alone to deter and maintain deterrence of seals, it uses physiological techniques rather than psychological 'scaring'. This is used to create an acoustic barrier or guard around each cage and the site.

Cetacean Friendly

We understand the need to ensure that our acoustic deterrents do not cause unnecessary harm to cetaceans.  Therefore, SeaGuard includes a whale and dolphin friendly 'soft-start' function - an extremely beneficial operation that gives mammals the opportunity to evacuate the area prior to the unit ramping up to full power.

Sensibly Designed

SeaGuard has been designed with simplicity in mind and with an emphasis on reliability. With just two projectors per controller on a pen, this means there are no unnecessary cables running between pens.  This reduces the likelihood of damage to cables and provides ease of maintenance.
