The Shellfish Saver

The aquaculture industry is growing quickly and is expected to become an even more important source of protein in the future. Great amounts of animal life in one area like shellfish, crustaceans and fish will eventually attract predatory birds. To keep them at distance, SaveWave has developed an innovative and highly specialized laser technology to easily and safely exclude sea ducks, seagulls, cormorants, herons and other nuisance birds from (shell)fish farms. This powerful handheld system is called the Shellfish Saver.

The laser technology used in the Shellfish Saver is innovative and cutting edge. The emitted laser beam is widened for optimal bird visibility and to prevent damage being done in the unlikely event of long term bird eye exposure. The beam itself with the associated “dot” is a very powerful bird deterrent. Birds feel threatened by the physical presence of the beam and laser dot and experience this as an unnatural and unpredictable threat. Their natural response to this threat is to avoid contact and move away, just like they do with an approaching car. The product is not designed to be aimed into the birds’ eyes, but to the birds’ “safety zone”, resulting in a flight response. No habituation has ever been documented because of this natural flight response.
