- secure net-cleaning only on a need-to basis (instead of at fixed intervals as is the case today)
- to provide objective measures
- reduces costs (done only when needed),
- improve animal welfare; secures sufficient oxygen levels for the fish and do as little disturbance for fish as possible
- protects the environment (reduce the spill of copper based anti-fouling to the seabed)
The primary effect: reduced use of anti-fouling, specifically copper-based resin, needed to clean the nets.
