Ace Aquatec has always striven to develop the most effective deterrent for reducing predation without negatively impacting other wildlife or harming the predator. Ace Aquatec received a SMART R&D award in 2013 to develop a responsive and responsible deterrent system. Our randomized algorithm was developed to avoid potential deafness in seals by avoiding continusous sound played in one frequency at loud volumes. In addition sonar triggers detect the approach of predators thereby reducing the amount of noise that can be heard by other wildlife including whales and porpoises. Low frequency transducers were developed as an alternative to reduce impact on cetaceans living near the fish farms. Electric nets have been designed to further deter predators which may suffer from natural deafness, and this avoids the tendency to ramp up volume and duration when such individuals are encountered.

Ace Aquatec strives to be a leader in the innovation of responsible technological solutions to predation. Our systems have been developed in extensive dialogue with environmental bodies and government organizations to create the best solution for farmers and wildlife.
