What do we want to discuss during the dialogue conference?

The aim of the County Governor of Troms and Finnmark is to bring about the development of a trapping device for pink salmon with an automatic sorting system. Such a system will require different components to cover each step involved in the solution. We need information about solutions such as:

• Technical solutions currently available on the market
• The potential and limitations of current solutions
• The main challenges in developing an automatic sorting system
• The costs involved in developing a complete solution
• Estimates of what it will cost to operate a complete solution
• How long it will take to develop such a solution
• The areas of application most appropriate for development

By inviting experts and suppliers/entrepreneurs to engage in dialogue with us, we hope to find out whether an automated sorting solution for pink salmon is technically feasible and viable. We also want to enter into dialogue with other users who are in need of a similar solution.
