International Aquafeed attended a talk given by Herman Kristjansson, Managing Director of Vaki, as part of the opportunities and Challenges for Scottish Aquaculture conference on day two of Aquaculture UK 2014.
Kristjansson’s talk titled Biomass Control – a major challenge forward, identified Biomass control as a key challenge for Scottish fish farmers. Vaki’s new frame Biomass Daily (which is placed inside cages) allows companies to monitor fish accurately on a daily basis providing measurements of exact weight and numbers. Kristjannson believes this technology should be used all the way from hatching to harvest as a way of overcoming the difficulties.
