Sound-Intimidating Systems that repel marine life. Garinko Star” works especially well using our Light-intimidating system, “Purse Sein Plus



Significant Effect on Tuna and Bonito Fishing off the coast of Sanriku!

Research teams from various fishery universities indicated that fish have five senses together with lateral line sensitivity.

Most of the domestic/international purse seiners still use iron pipes to hit the side of the ship to prevent fish from escaping the nets. However, it is unlikely that this sound penetrates deep water.

Garinko Star is our new product using a sound-intimidating system that stimulates ‘the awareness of sound’ and ‘lateral line sensitivity’ of the fish.

As a result of many trial experiments on a purse seiner (135 tons) for six months with the support and advice of the skipper and crew, Garinko Star has received generous endorsement in its use for tuna and bonito fishing off the coast of Sanriku.

Garinko Star” works especially well using our Light-intimidating system, “Purse Sein Plus” - see fig.1 & 2 to the right.
