AI to predict the best time to harvest shrimp

The challenge in aquaculture

Having complete visibility over pond biomass to forecast the best time to harvest shrimp is tricky.

Farmers expect to reach a specific target size by looking at the average body weight, while buyers rely on count per kg to secure their crops.

Without accurate data, how can both parties predict their outcomes?

Our take at it

Leveraging artificial intelligence could be the key to predict the optimal time to harvest.

Fed continuously by billions of shrimp data points, our AI-driven aquaculture management platform predicts future organism weight, distribution and estimated survival.

When this data is combined with operational costs and market prices, it provides the basis for a complete analysis of cycle profitability.

How our solution works

Throughout the whole production cycle, use the XperCount to acquire accurate and valuable harvest data. Analyze results on the Growth Platform to make data-driven decisions.

01

Track weight distribution

Analyze current pond composition based on the percentage of animals in each commercial size.
02

Predict optimal harvest time

Find out when your shrimp will reach target size and discover the most profitable time to harvest.
03

Ease the negotiation process

Edit survival, update costs and prices. See how much profit you could make or lose by waiting an extra week.

Benefits for farmers and experts

Get full visibility over pond composition.
Discover the most profitable time to harvest.
Redefine the relationship between farmer and buyer.

“We once had a conflict with our processor which resulted in significant profit loss. We had harvested our shrimp at an average 24g, but the processing plant thought 40% of the pond was actually under 20g. XpertSea prevents this problem because we have visibility over our size categories prior to harvest.“
