SEATRU™ is a new aquaculture alliance set to use precision monitoring and treatment to keep shrimp ponds healthy.
Shrimp farmers are hampered by a lack of reliable data on water quality and animal health, resulting in frequent unpredictable disease outbreaks.
Disease can wipe out a pond in five days and there are currently no effective methods to prevent disease in shrimp.
30% average mortality rate and a $6 billion global average annual loss due to disease.
