Aquaculture technology provider develops real-time AI-based analytics solution for shrimp

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Umitron unveiled UMITRON EAGLE, its latest technology solution offering the world’s first real-time AI-based analytics solution to shrimp producers. It uses advanced AI detection to track multiple real-time biological conditions and other factors in highly turbid and intensive production environments.

In recent decades, the global industry has been primarily centered around an almost singular species, the Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei). However, despite seeing exceptional growth in the sector, the industry is still plagued by many issues ranging from disease outbreaks, general health management and poor environmental management protocols that can lead to mass mortality events and disrupt the supply chain.

Umitron has spent a couple of years developing a solution to assess shrimp production conditions in real-time using customized AI algorithms. These include, but are not limited to, real-time appetite analysis, health and growth conditions, and biomass. While important, these metrics are not always actively charted and monitored due to a lack of available resources and solutions on the market, be it manpower or automation-wise. With UMITRON EAGLE, producers can now optimize their feeding protocols easily and automatically using real-time analytics. In addition to the current partnership with Charoen Pokphand Foods (CPF), Umitron would also like to extend this solution to other shrimp farmers to improve the operations at their production sites.

Via UMITRON EAGLE, producers can expect to successfully achieve:

  • Improvements in FCR, growth and harvest amounts for each crop.
  • Improved biosecurity measures and work protocols.
  • Reduction in feed wastage which may contribute to undesirable environmental conditions such as poor water quality and highly-turbid conditions and require frequent water changes.
  • Better long-term farming management protocols and optimized operations using the accumulated production data.

Umitron will help strengthen the resilience and growth of the shrimp production landscape, and achieve a more sustainable production environment and footprint in super-intensive farming conditions. 

The company is keen on connecting with producers who operate intensive and advanced shrimp farms and are interested in implementing digitization technologies to take their production to a higher level. Contact the company at info@umitron.com.
