Following Best Practices in Pond Management with our Pond Monitoring System

Proper pond  management and check on water quality is essential to successful and quality shrimp production. To an aquaculture farmer , the success of shrimp farming initiative is not just limited to increase in productivity but also improvement of yield in the farming.

 

The goal of any farming initiative is to provide a good quality environment, thereby reducing shrimp stress and promoting shrimp health and quality. Shrimp are normally exposed disease-causing organisms in pond waters. The immune system of healthy shrimp can normally defend against infection. However, once shrimp are exposed to environmental factors such as poor quality water, their immunity is reduced and they become prone to diseases.

Some important parameters that requires constant check are the following:

Temperature    26-300 C

Salinity 15-32 ppt

Dissolved Oxygen >4.0 mg/l

pH  7.0-8.5

Free Ammonia (NH3) < 0.15 mg/l

Nitrite (NO2) < 4.5 mg/l

Our Pond Monitoring System

Our Pond monitoring system called CZIOT provides a complete automated solution to this issue. Some of the parameters where we add value are:

  • Introducing real-time completely automated remote monitoring technology
  • Condition based instead of schedule based monitoring
  • Reducing operational cost
  • Bringing Predictability in Aquaculture farming by reducing risk
  • Bring high value predictions using machine learning
  • Covering the complete supply chain including the transportation leg (reefer containers Trucks and terminals)
  • Ability to monitor wide range of parameters like Dissolved Oxygen, PH, Temperature, Salinity, Conductivity, TDS etc.
