The Aquaculture Innovation Challenge, a contest organized by Netherlands-based Seafood Trade Intelligence Portal, sought to give Indonesia’s struggling shrimp sector a boost.
The Aquaculture Innovation Challenge finds sustainable innovations and helps developers gain access to the knowledge, networks and capital needed to grow.
A company in Indonesia hopes the vast network of shrimp farms throughout the country will adopt its IoT device, particularly when they’re on the go.
The impact of diseases led some Asian shrimp farming countries to develop biofloc and recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) production technologies. Treating incoming water for culture operations and wastewater treatment are biosecurity measures for disease prevention and control.
Dutch investment firm Aqua-Spark has in just two years developed a modest portfolio, but a strategy that is poised for growth and impact across the entire aquaculture value chain, its CEO and co-founder told the Advocate.
A multinational project in Lombok, Indonesia, is focused on the identification and monitoring of improved seed collection and grow-out production methods for spiny lobsters.
Although lobster farming is already established in Indonesia, improvements in feed and nutrition, and seed collection would help the industry expand. The diet of trash fish fed to developing lobsters generates waste and is not conducive to good hygiene or
Spiny lobsters have a long, complex life cycle. Growing them through larval stages is a particular challenge. Spiny lobster culture is currently centered in Vietnam, where the industry depends on wild-caught animals for stocking and trash fish for feeding.
Lobster cage culture has great potential in Indonesia. The current industry consists of about 1,000 small-scale farm units, many of which raise lobsters in polyculture with seaweed and grouper.
