eFishery's smart feeding solution helps fish and shrimp farmers make informed decisions about their aquaculture ponds. Their technology senses the fish's appetite by monitoring their vibrations as they correlate with levels of hunger, allowing eFishery to help farmers feed their fish automatically, in a timely manner, with the accurate dosage of feed. With internet-connected technology, farmers can manage their ponds remotely from a simple smartphone. The data can also predict how much fish the farmers will harvest and sell, allowing them to connect with buyers before arriving to market. Ultimately, eFishery's technology can increase yields by up to 35 percent and double net profit, helping hundreds of millions of farmers globally at the bottom of the pyramid, while tackling the global challenge of food security.

Notable Achievements

  • More than 13,000 farmers and 60,000 ponds as paid users of our technology
  • Currently the largest feed distributor and fish supplier in Indonesia without operating any single pond.

Currently Operating in Four Regions
