Wittaya Aqua – Fisheries Management Software
As global seafood consumption increases, sustainable aquaculture is ramping up its production to keep pace with demand. The growth of sustainable aquaculture is imperative for easing the pressure off wild fisheries populations. The Internet of Things (IoT) sensors play a key role in data collection for fisheries while data analytics further generates real-time actionable insights. To this end, startups and scaleups develop fisheries management software solutions to improve the productivity of fisheries.
Candian startup Wittaya Aqua develops AquaOp, a software platform for the management of fisheries. The startup’s solution is easy to use, comprehensive, and adaptable to a wide variety of aquaculture species ranging from trout to shrimp. The AquaOp platform combines advanced mathematical and nutritional models to analyze data. The platform creates value for fisheries by optimizing feeding practices, reducing uncertainty in forecasting production, and tracking commercially important benchmarks.
HydroNeo – Smart Shrimp Farming
Shrimps require careful and meticulous rearing to ensure high product quality. Today, IoT sensors are able to collect data related to the fishery and predict disease breakouts. Startups develop innovative smart monitoring and feeding solutions to improve the efficiency and productivity of shrimp farming.
German startup HydroNeo offers smart management systems for farming shrimp. With the help of IoT sensors, the startup enables aqua farmers to gather data regarding feeding and water quality to improve the efficiency of shrimp farming. Moreover, the startup’s smart automated feeding solution helps improve the feed conversion ratio. The startup’s smart aeration solution also optimizes energy costs to improve fishery profitability.
Savitri Aquamonk – Aquaculture Analytics
Data analytics together with computing power enables fishery managers to customize smart dashboards and derive actionable insights. For aquaculture farms, accurate weather data provides an important avenue for achieving operational efficiency. Startups develop innovative analytics solutions to help farmers better manage their fisheries.
Indian startup Savitri Aquamonk builds analytics solutions for the aquaculture industry. With the help of ambient and water-based sensors, the startup collects data related to water pH values, temperature, oxygen content, and light sensitivity. The analytics dashboard then structures the data into actionable insights relating to feeding patterns, maintenance routines, and other activities. The startup also offers an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that enables aquaculture farmers to automate financial tasks and material requirements, among other processes.
Microsynbiotix – Disease Management
Poor water quality in fisheries and irregular quality testing cause disease breakouts in aquaculture farms, later resulting in inventory loss. Monitoring fish farms for water quality levels, size of fish, and feeding patterns help predict and avoid disease outbreaks in fish farms. Startups develop oral vaccine solutions for treating diseased fish populations.
The US-based startup Microsynbiotix develops a patent-pending technique of producing oral vaccines to manage disease breakouts in fisheries. The startup leverages microalgae and molecular biology to develop an oral delivery mechanism for vaccines. The vaccines significantly reduce labor and post-processing production costs and allow the production of effective vaccines that are affordable and user-friendly. The startup’s technology also reduces the use of antibiotics, and in turn fish mortality rates, in aquaculture farms.
Ambrotechs – Pond Management
Effective pond management increases the production of food for human consumption and also paves the way for sustainable business opportunities. Aquaculture creates employment, especially in rural areas, and increases national exports, while substituting imports with local production. Startups develop comprehensive aquaculture farm management solutions that improve the efficiency of local fisheries.
Indian startup Ambrotechs provides BluRay, an integrated farm and pond management platform. The platform features geo-tagging of ponds for accurate predictions of weather data. The platform tracks daily logs related to feeding, fish growth, and treatments used for traceability and output predictability. BluRay’s configurable feed programs are based on stocking density, as well as weather and feed type, to reduce the feed conversion ratio (FCR) and its related costs. Further, the startup offers a portable device for collecting water samples to conduct water quality diagnosis.
