Sincere Aquaculture, a company specializing in biomass insights, has introduced the SC-4K Shrimp Counter, a tech that Oceanloop has integrated it into its operations in both farms in Munich and Kiel. 

“Oceanloop is dedicated to continuous improvement and delivering optimal outcomes,” said Oceanloop’s Co-CEO, Dr. Bert Wecker. “Sincere Aqua’s shrimp counting technology addresses a regularly occurring challenge we face in accurately determining our stocking density especially at smaller shrimp sizes. With this advanced solution, we can precisely manage our shrimp populations, streamline our operations, and reduce the need for manual handling.” 

The SC-4K Shrimp Counter is equipped with advanced sensor technology, artificial intelligence, and computer vision, ensuring precise and reliable shrimp counting during the transfer from nursery to the grow-out phase. With a counting speed of 200,000 shrimp per hour and the ability to accurately count sizes ranging from two to eight centimetres, the SC-4K sets a new industry standard. Sincere Aqua guarantees a minimum accuracy of 90 per cent as long as the average size falls within the 2-8 centimetre range. 

“Oceanloop’s technologically advanced approach to inland shrimp farming is truly remarkable,” said Fríði Mellemgaard, CEO of Sincere Aqua. “They employ a multitude of advanced methods and technologies, making them a leading force in the industry. Their dedication to sustainability and adoption of cutting-edge solutions make Oceanloop a true innovator in land-based shrimp farming.”
