Atlantic Photonic Solutions is selected as one of the top 20 European companies about to make an impact on our food

Founded in Castlebar, Co. Mayo in 2018 Atlantic Photonic Solutions has developed a fish-friendly light that aims to remove sea lice from farmed salmon. Sea lice has become a major problem in the salmon farming industry, with Ireland, Scotland and Norway cited as having critical lice populations.

Led by managing director Rory Casey, the start-up hopes to use its device, which emits a particular wavelength of light, to treat sea lice.

Last November, the company was named a regional winner at the Inter Trade Ireland Seedcorn competetion, taking home €20,000, before being named best new start-up at the national finals and winning a further €50,000.
