The startup provides an innovative approach to fish farming by utilizing a proprietary autonomous submarine robot that effectively cleans, inspects, and gathers essential data from underwater cages, contributing to the progression of aquaculture practices with increased efficiency and environmental consideration. The newly acquired funds will be strategically directed towards the further development of Remora Robotics’ cutting-edge autonomous net cleaning technology.

“Remora Robotics has developed new and exciting technology for a global market. The company’s technology can contribute to making net cleaning more efficient, and improving fish health, which is important to be able to continue to develop the farming industry in a sustainable way. The investment fits our investment strategy well, with a focus on marine technology, and we see the technology and business model as future-oriented,” says Lars Jørgen Loktu, Investment Manager at Grieg Kapital.

“We have followed the market for automated and autonomous cleaning for some time and believe that the industry will embrace this type of technology. The solution can contribute to improving both growth, profitability and sustainability for fish farmers at the same time, and thus check all the the marks on our mandate.
