In early 2017 we formed Blue Lice. Four aspiring individuals had a mission to make a company in the fish farming industry and create a sustainable solution reducing the sea lice problem.
We started out by listening to fish farming experts, researchers and industry experts who had been digging deep in to the problem of sea lice.
The four of us together with X2 Labs formed Blue Lice with a great combination of personality and skill. We have had a fast progress from day one and are now ready for a full scale pilot project to validate our solution.
We also have international marked value. Sea lice is a problem worldwide and with small modifications our solution is ready to prevent sea lice in fish farms all over the world.
