Health

Since Benchmark Health was established we have supported farmers throughout the world to manage sea lice utilising our market leading Salmosan® Vet treatment.

In 2021, we launched Ectosan® Vet – the first sea lice veterinary medicinal treatment introduced to the Norwegian salmon market in over a decade. Used exclusively together with CleanTreat®, our award-winning water purification system, the new solution has been a breakthrough development for the aquaculture industry in strategically managing sea lice. Benchmark Health support farmers in the UK, Norway, Faroe Islands, Canada, and Chile.

Ectosan® Vet

Ectosan® Vet is the first sea lice veterinary medicinal treatment to be introduced to the Norwegian salmon market in over a decade.

This new bath treatment, used together with CleanTreat®, is a breakthrough development for the aquaculture industry — providing an effective tool for use within the Integrated Pest Management strategy for sea lice; improving fish welfare, whilst protecting the environment.

Water Purification

CleanTreat® by Benchmark® is a water purification system. It is the first of its kind to be used in the aquaculture industry and works by removing medicines from treatment water before returning purified water into the sea. CleanTreat® makes use of the now common practice of using well boats for managing parasitic infestations, including delousing.

In 2019 CleanTreat® by Benchmark® received the prestigious NorFishing Innovation Award.

Aquaculture Stewardship Council have included CleanTreat® as a mitigation  tool in their current ‘Weighted Number of Medicinal Treatments’ – resulting in all treatments receiving a score of zero

We want to build, with our customers, a future in aquaculture where fish welfare and care for the environment are considered key enablers of growth.
