Data services company adds health information for fish farmers

January 26, 2022

Aquaculture data services company, Manolin, unveiled real-time system integrations with Patogen, Cognite and Meox for customers on its platform, in addition to its existing integrations. Manolin farmer members can now tie PCR test results to their farm production data in one central system.

“The ability to find lab results, environmental information and farm data in one place has great potential to improve our production. With this, our team can optimize efficiency, more accurately assess risk, and improve our fish welfare. These open and connected data systems can allow more farmers, and the industry, to improve their strategies with better tools,” said Andreas Skagøy, fish health manager at Måsøval Fiskeoppdrett.

Manolin’s customers have access to previously unseen insights into how production decisions are impacting their bottom line. By combining more real-time sensor data, historic farm data, PCR results, and more on Manolin’s platform, farmers can assess treatment and service provider choices in real-time. 

The system also benchmarks each farm production against the entire industry and alerts farm teams to increased risk of fish health issues using machine learning. “Farmers today need to manage information from many different sources in order to make the best decisions. We’re excited to be adding more integrations that will make data accessible throughout the organization but also identify the risk factors contributing to each farmer’s unique fish health profile. For example, which conditions are leading to more disease, mortality events, or ineffective lice treatments,” said John Costantino, co-founder and CTO of Manolin. 

“We are excited to work with Manolin as they use Cognite Data Fusion to equip farmers with real-time data and insights that farmers can use in their daily decision making,” said Tord Leth-Olsen, director of Strategic Alliances at Cognite. “The integration between Manolin and the contextual data in Cognite Data Fusion was achieved in just one week—instantly fueling Manolin with contextualized and connected data across the value chain, from roe to end product.”

In August 2021, Manolin announced a new service to automatically alert farmers to non-notifiable diseases in their area. This is the first and only available system to notify farmers about the risk of non-notifiable diseases nearby, which are not currently tracked by Norwegian government regulators. The company plans to continue to build new integrations with farm service providers and benchmark industry performance throughout 2022.
