Skretting Ecuador has launched a package of precision-based tools, incorporating nutrition, farm management practices and proactive technical support designed to offer full control of the total farm cycle and boost farm profitability.

Delivered via the Skretting AquaSim app, Skretting 360+ has the capability to benchmark the performance of each cycle and manage feed and harvest predictions customised to every pond. The collection of essential real-time data enables teams to take proactive and preventative action to help customers get the maximum value from their farm in a sustainable and cost-effective way.

“We can’t do this without the commitment from our customers,” said Carlos Miranda, managing director of Skretting Latin America. “The future is in our hands and the opportunity is now.”

Managing growth

Skretting Ecuador said it has a long-term commitment to enabling the country’s shrimp industry to sustainably increase its production while also reducing its exposure to risk, alongside empowering farmers and reducing farming costs.

20 years ago, Skretting first generated growth models for salmon and other fish species – the original AquaSim. Over the past five years, Skretting has been developing the concept for shrimp based on research, experimentation and validation.

Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC) has a dedicated team of shrimp researchers, located in Norway. Research trials have been carried out at the Skretting ARC Hezhoubei Research Station in China, with validation trials at the Skretting Validation Station in Ecuador. On-farm validation under different conditions and challenges has taken place in Ecuador and Vietnam.
