UMITRON is looking to revamp shrimp aquaculture using artificial intelligence.

The Singapore-based company has partnered with the world’s largest shrimp business enterprise, Charoan Pokphans Foods Company (CP Food), to develop its sustainable model for shrimp aquaculture.

UMITRON looks to integrate its suite of services with CP Food’s integrated agro-industrial and food businesses across Thailand. The objective is to improve grow efficiency, improve quality of work and biosecurity, while reducing waste feeding.

UMITRON exhibited its latest products at Aquaculture Europe 2019 in Berlin, Germany last October. The UMITRON CELL is an automated smart feeder that collects data to optimize the feeding process while being remotely managed through a cloud-based application on a mobile device. UMITRON FAI is the world’s first real-time, ocean-based fish appetite detection system that monitors across multiple cage units to optimise feeding time.

CP Food operates integrated agro-industrial and food businesses across Thailand, including swine, broiler, layer, duck, shrimp and fish. It also runs food retail outlets.
