Lumpfish are used in aquaculture as a natural clean fish that removes parasites off of salmon. Once they reach a certain size, they are killed and thrown into the landfill.
The humps of the lumpfish (see picture here: https://www.hi.no/resources/imr/HI-034608.jpg/articleimg ) are very high in collagen, a valuable marine feedstock.
3F Waste Recovery is looking for an engineering inclined student with 3D design skills to design and prototype a lumpfish removal blade; a manual one with a handle and a blade(s) suitable for integration into a mechanized solution.
Depending on skills/scope of project, royalty agreement opportunity is on the table.
