Are you interested in hearing about the latest in technology innovation within aquaculture? Over the first six weeks of the programme 13 Hatch teams have completed 27 mentor sessions, on Hawaii. On Tuesday 15. October the teams from Norway, USA, Thailand, Ireland, Portugal and Argentina will pitch their technology, progress, team – and future plans.
There will be two hours of presentations and then two hours of food and mingling. The arrangement will be held in English.
About the companies
Algaeba is is developing a fully automated shrimp hatchery to reliably produce high-quality shrimp post-larvae, as well as a micro algae production technology that can extend the exponential growth phase of micro algae.
Impact9 develops new mechanical and structural solutions for offshore aquaculture. It is mainly focused on novel mooring and anchoring solutions for offshore ﬁsh containers. Enabling aquaculture operations to move into more exposed environments.
KAS, a biotechnology company that produces heterotrophic micro algae to develop specialty chemicals and raw materials (such as astaxanthin) for animal markets (feed, colorant) and for the human market (cosmetics, nutrition).
Dynaspace will provide an algal bloom detection and warning system, forecasting algae blooms by using state of the art satellite remote sensing, in-situ measurements, and machine learning algorithms.
The NSS NOxAqua will be a smart sensor for water analysis. Simultaneously measuring three nitrogen compounds – ammonium, nitrite and nitrate – quantitatively and in real time.
GentiRate – Quantitative high-throughput measurement of metabolic rate to select individual aquatic animals with improved feed efﬁciency and growth rate.
Catchatrade – An integrated B2B online seafood marketplace. Catchatrade plans to target the top four aquaculture producing countries: China, Indonesia, India, and Vietnam.
Kinnva is an alternative protein company. Using innovative fermentation technologies to produce high value biochemicals and biomaterials for feed.
FeedVax has developed a platform of oral vaccines that will reduce the use of antibiotics, eliminate ﬁsh stress and simplify farmer’s life. The ﬁrst product will be for Streptococcosis vaccinations in tilapia.
Gaskiya makes low cost, easy to use, quantitative, paper-based diagnostic test kits. The ﬁrst product is for Streptococcus diagnosis in Tilapia.
Montana Microbial – Producing barley protein concentrate for use in aquaculture feed. Montana Microbial operates a laboratory and a pilot plant in Montana.
Symbrosia: Developing an efﬁcient growth method of A. taxiformis seaweed. Proven signiﬁcant methane reduction (>95%) in cattle when incorporated into their feed.
Univiv: Culturing a particular strain of Archaea as an aquaculture pond additive. Trials have shown the archaea to increase production efﬁciencies, reduce FCR and reduce inputs.
