Counting Shrimp with Sonar
Ever wonder where shrimp come from? Shrimp farming is harder than you might think! Agriculture and aquaculture farmers need to understand how many plants and animals they are growing on land or in the water to make decisions on their farm. For aqua-farmers counting shrimp is a major challenge because their animals are grown in murky water and the farmers are blindfolded to how many shrimp they have. Minnowtech aims to help the farmers by counting their shrimp using sonar and the math behind their behavior, providing aqua-farmers with the information they need to manage their farm efficiently. In this seminar, Suzan Shahrestani of Minnowtech tells us how shrimp and other seafood get to your dinner plate, and how Minnowtech is striving to make that process easier for farmers.
