Revolutionizing fish healthcare

Our vision and mission

By harnessing the power of data, we empower fish farmers with the knowledge and insights needed to take preventive measures, ensuring the well-being of their fish and setting the stage for industry growth.

Our mission is to enhance the sustainability of the aquaculture industry through increased productivity resulting from improved fish health and welfare.

This type of proactive approach might seem a no-brainer, given that it’s already used widely in human medicine and agriculture. However, it’s a very complex process and we’re just scratching the surface when it comes to developing the system for fish health.
