Skretting in Southern Europe has launched ‘Skretting 360+’. What is it? ‘Skretting 360+’ is a disruptive precision farming concept that optimises feeding protocols and production management, thus increasing Mediterranean aquaculture’s competitiveness and sustainability.
Skretting has been holding a long-term commitment to enable Mediterranean aquaculture to sustainably increase its fish production while reducing its risk exposure.
Following more than three years of development, the ground-breaking concept of ‘Skretting 360+’ was launched. It empowers farmers to establish many improved levels of cost-efficiency and sustainability at their farms.
Utilising the latest analytical software and other Industry 4.0 technologies to bring greater levels of innovation to fish production, ‘Skretting 360+’ is a complete package of precision-based tools and services, incorporating nutrition, farm management practices and technical support as well as state-of-the-art underwater cameras and sensor equipment (IoT). The expectation is that with ‘Skretting 360+’, farmers will be able to lower the feed conversion rates (FCRs) of important market species like Mediterranean seabass, seabream, meagre, amberjack and rainbow trout, which remain relatively high compared with many other farmed fish species.
It enables the remote monitoring of fish biomass and critical environmental parameters at farm sites, while also calculating the optimal feeding and production management protocols, thereby providing the means to reduce costs and impacts. For added convenience, much of this is delivered through AquaSim, which is Skretting’s powerful suite of management tools designed to optimise farm performance and provide tailor-made, farm-specific digital advice.
“Skretting Southern Europe has worked very closely with fish farmers and aquaculture companies throughout the region for several decades, providing technical support and precision farming services. This has given us invaluable local insight into the market’s particular needs and ambitions and led to the development and launch of ‘Skretting 360+’. Utilising highly sophisticated technologies, we believe this new range of precision farming services and tools will disrupt the status quo and drive the industry forward,” said Juan Antonio González García, Skretting’s Precision Farming Manager Cluster Southern Europe.
