Issue

Fossil fuel dependency

There is a strong dependency on fossil fuels.

Fisheries are highly dependent on fossil fuels. When the price of fossil fuels rises, the costs for fisheries increase rapidly.

Solution

Sustainable fishing vessel

The MDV1 Immanuel is a new fishing vessel with several improvements. The ship is smaller, lighter, built with sustainable materials and has an efficient energy generation. Thereby, a new technique is used to fish on flatflish; the twinrigpuls. The caught fish is processed immediately by machine, resulting in higher efficiency and a better quality.
