Cutting edge health products
Disease outbreaks and parasites remain the largest restriction on the growth of the aquaculture industry. Benchmark is developing solutions for some of the most persistent diseases in salmon, shrimp and marine finfish, including sea lice in salmon and viral diseases of fish.
We tackle unmet needs with both preventative methods and treatments, including vaccines, medicines and sea lice treatments. Our locations around the world give us first-hand knowledge of emerging health issues in the key aquaculture regions and species, permitting more effective diagnosis, treatment and disease management advice.
