This Live Fish Carrier, with 50 meters length and 12,6 meters beam, has capacity to transport 1000 m3 of water and fish alive in her hold.

MARTIN SÆLE will operate in the Shetland Islands, where she will transport young and adult fish between different farms along the coast, and also to and from the in-land fish factories and farms. She is a technologically advanced vessel and will be able to accommodate up to 7 crew members; but due to her high degree of automation, can be operated only by 4 persons.
