TECHNOLOGY

Advantages:

Fast & cost-effective

Provides immediate results using a simple and even low-grade image vs time consuming and expensive lab testing

Ethical & sustainable

Our solution doesn’t require the sacrifice of fish for analysis, helping to minimise waste, unnecessary death and supporting sustainable objectives

Enables individualized fish farming

Recognize fish and receive insights and predictions for each to make individual decisions replacing decisions based on rough estimates from small samples

Deep learning based

Allows us to use images to understand the characteristics of individual fish and make predictions about their performance

Truly allows farmers to see the unseen and predict the unknown

Provides early insights

Provides insights and predictions at the early stages of rearing

Aquaticode provides non-intrusive, non-destructive, image-based software solutions for individual recognition, diagnosis, trait detection and phenotypic prediction for marine species.

Solutions:

For breeders

Detect traits and predict genetic proximity and genomic values without genetic testing to better sort eggs for breeding and production:

  • Accurately identify family/genetic background of eggs from images
  • Detect genetic traits
  • Predict improved estimated breeding values for each egg without genetic testing

This allows breeders to:

  • Reduce breeding time
  • Increase the probability of achieving breeding targets
  • Reduce research cost
  • Provide an improved product

For farmers

Recognize each fish as it grows, detect traits and predict phenotypes including: gender, gonadal development, smoltification and other valuable characteristics for:

  • Predicting future performance
  • Grouping of fish at the same development stage and predicted growth rate
  • Sorting out of fish that will not survive to harvest (non-disease resistant, expected to mature too early, etc.)
  • Early diagnosis of viral outbreaks

This allows farmers to:

  • Focus resources on the “best” individuals
  • Increase survival rates
  • Increase output, while lowering inputs
  • Improve farming sustainability
  • Improve profitability
