The aim of this study has been to evaluate new and improved systems for efficient landing of fish in Hovden, Vesterålen and Havøysund, Finnmark. The new fish on shore landing systems and technologies were evaluated in terms of how the data were registered and logged throughout the entire fish landing process. The fish factories in this study report several important reasons for implementing the new lines. Most importantly, efficient landings of fish lead to a higher quality of both fish and the by products resulting in improved profit.
