The FIAP profiwork fish stunner is a robust and low-maintenance device for stunning and killing farmed fish. The current delivered by the device can be adjusted digitally depending on the fish size, weight, number, and conductivity of the water, among other factors. Tissue bleeding can be prevented by setting the current at the appropriate level. In contrast to models with grid electrodes, the stunner’s plate electrode guarantees a uniform electric field, which stuns or kills the fish depending on the strength of the field. In FIAP’s profiwork fish stunner a setting between 1 and 4 serves to stun the fish, while a setting of between 5 and 9 kills the fish. The stunning time is set by default at 90 seconds.
The device is sold ready for use and is available in three sizes. The package includes a container, a digital control unit, and a contact switch for the container lid. The profiwork fish stunner allows fast and painless killing of fish in accordance with legal requirements for animal welfare.
