THE ultimate in shrimp RAS grow out locations.
What – EU does not have this already in place? Or is this a fund raising exercise?
Back in the 1980s and in South America we had access to NASA satellite pictures of our shrimp ponds in Ecuador. Idea was to use color and heat signature of 30 hectare ponds to calculate water/feed requirements – with feeding by modified crop duster plane and water exchange capabilities for pond algal growth.
It was too expensive and anyway better to have on ground analysis for rapid response – especially in proactive preventative pond culture husbandry. Yes shrimp farming was about growing and maintaining algal blooms in those days and efficiencies on fertilizers and water exchanges. Uneaten feed acted as fertilizer as well.
This UK announce project seems to be using NASA technology also.
With the advent of agTech localized drones I wonder if this is really necessary for crop production and management.

Gambarios ….what are these best described as? Shrimporiums or prawnscapes?
Mindful of how shrimp farming is progressing keeping an eye on other food tech is a transferable monitoring strategy..
