Harvesting Solution - Stunning and Bleeding of Salmon

Our promise: painless, fearless and stress-free stunning

Maintain your High Value Products

The BAADER 101 Harvesting System is based on a combination stunner and bleeder that utilizes percussive technology. It is recognized as the industry standard and is being used successfully in many countries throughout the world.  

Many of the BAADER 101 components are modular in design and can be used in both the swim-in delivery systems and the manual feed systems for on- and offshore. Simple single units through to multichannel systems are available to suit customer requirements.

The BAADER 101 performs accurate stunning and bleeding that results in immediately and irreversibly stunned fish. This process, however, does not interfere with heart activity and it continues to pump, giving an optimal bleed out result.

Low stress or ‘rested-harvesting’ provides many benefits including the maintenance of product quality, extended pre-rigor processing and a lower intensity of rigor. It is possible to deliver a fresher product, earlier to the market.

B’Logic Process Navigator air BAADER 101 is our dedicated software solution for performance monitoring and yield control.
