eFishery, a company based in Indonesia and spearheaded by TED Prize director Amy Novogratz, hopes to alleviate waste problems that result from both over and underfeeding of fish with the development of a smart feeding device that bases the amount of feed dispensed on fish behavior.
Fish feeding typically accounts for 50 to 80 percent of a fish farm’s overhead costs, but since feeding is a manual task, its mostly an unmeasured and inexact method with one of two outcomes.
eFishery’s automatic smart feeder is designed to address these issues and dispense just the right amount of feed by using sensors that measure fish appetite.
Designed for large- and small-scale farmers, the system picks up on hungry fish behavior through an in-water, vibration-based sensor that can read the movement of a hungry versus a full fish.
“I saw the problem when I was a fish farmer myself. Fish feeding is done inefficiently by laborers, and farmers don’t have any technology to control the feeding yet. We built this product to make the fish and shrimp farming business more efficient, convenient, and accountable.”
