Artificial Intelligence To Assist Aquaculture
Tech ID: UA18-184
This technology developed at the University of Arizona uses artificial intelligence to identify and predict diseases in aquaculture, particularly in shrimp. This technology also has the potential to be utilized in other types of aquaculture including salmon, trout, tilapia, carp and catfish.
There are currently no commercial therapeutics available for any shrimp diseases, especially viral diseases. Preventing the entry of disease-causing agents in culture ponds remains the predominant form of management in shrimp aquaculture. To identify disease, samples from a shrimp population are physically examined and assessed with diagnostic assays. This technology provides a way to make decisions based on quantitative data.
