Due to an increase in demand for acoustic fish deterrents (AFDs), Fish Guidance Systems is delighted to announce the addition of three new members to its team.

New projects, from across the globe, means that the constant innovation and research that has kept Fish Guidance Systems at the forefront of the industry for over 25 years, requires additional support and expertise. The addition of  Nikhil Mistry, Paul Qureshi and Innes Macdonald in the roles of acoustician, lead research and development engineer, and business development executive respectively means that this work can now expand into new projects and territories.

Experts in acoustic fish deterrents

Fish Guidance Systems’ projects are tailored to control the movement of species, such as invasive carp, Salmon, and Eels. The systems use Sound Projector Arrays, High Intensity Lights, and other stimuli to guide and deter fish from harmful or restricted areas. Fish Guidance Systems technology and expertise are found in projects around the world, including at nuclear power stations, and major infrastructure projects such as locks and dams
