Lets welcome the Aquanetix team

We sat down with Diogo Thomaz, one of the co- founders of Aquanetix and he told us about the UK based company which he created a few years back together with Stella Adamidou.

Aquanetix has built an application for aquaculture businesses which is based on cloud technologies. Everybody in aquaculture, from fish farmers to farm employees, can easily install it on their smart phone, tablet or computer and have an intuitive tool to collect their daily data on site, in real time. The data gathered, are analyzed with specialized algorithms, and are transformed into useful information which can help businesses minimize loses, particularly on feed. It allows, for example, to evaluate biomass in the production units, compare actual growth and feeding with models and continuously evaluate performance of each batch of fish or shrimp.

The Aquanetix team was created on early 2012. The original idea was to create a simple application that would empower the user to immediately understand how well fish feeds are used. Two years later, in the summer of 2014 they came for the first time to Stone Soup and met with Klaas Speller and Giannis Drosidis.  Klaas helped them in the system architecture while Giannis undertook the mobile application.

On January 2015 the app was released and they currently have clients all around the world from Africa to Europe and from America to New Zealand that grow more than 20 species in all type of farm operations.
