Scottish Sea Farms and Spillfree has signed a contract

Scottish Sea Farms has purchased an e-learning program for a total of 200 employees from Spillfree Analytics. This will give employees a common platform and increased expertise on feeding and feeding optimisation.

The contract means that over the next two years, up to 200 employees of Scottish Sea Farms will undergo the e-learning course in the Academy portal, which has been prepared and carried out by Spillfree. The course will initially be carried out by operational managers, feeding personnel and fish health specialists, and will later become part of the onboarding in the company.

The e-learning course in Academy consists of various modules within feeding optimisation. Through the course, the employees will, among other things, learn more about equipment, and how the feeding operators can make good choices during a feeding day. Camera control and how to drive camera with purpose, doing involvements, and making good decisions about changing the dose. Finally, the course covers dynamic feeding and freedom to the operator. This will form the basis for what is needed to create outstanding feeding performance and feed more sustainably and economically.

Scottish Sea Farms Learning & Development Coordinator Irene Pozo said: “Feeding our salmon a nutritionally complete diet at each stage of the growing cycle is a key element of our ‘grown with care’ approach. Thanks to Spillfree, we have been better able to standardise our feed training across the company, helping ensure the same high standard of feeding at each and every farm.”
Scottish Sea Farms is the second largest producer in Scotland, with approx. 50 locations – three freshwater hatcheries, 44 marine farms and two processing facilities – and 650 employees.

– For Spillfree, the feeder and the feeding are always in focus. This is what we work with and are concerned about every day. We are therefore incredibly happy to be able to contribute to greater attention and professionalism around this topic at Scottish Sea Farms, says Hedda Mathisen, who is responsible for e-learning courses in Spillfree.
