ID Water develops patented water quality monitoring systems and provides AI and IoT solutions intended to help shrimp farmers increase their production. The company specializes in building environmentally sustainable and smart shrimp farms. Their farms solve three major problems of traditional aquaculture: mangrove destruction, water pollution, and food safety. They are actively transforming the 600-hectares of abandoned ponds in Yilan, Taiwan into concrete-structure shrimp farms. The bio-floc method they are using effectively contains disease spread and reuses 92% of the wastewater. ID Water offers an end-to-end solution combining water quality monitoring, automatic water paddles, and a feeding machine, revolutionizing the aquaculture industry.

Notable Achievements

  • Achieved Taiwan’s highest density shrimp production at laboratory-scale, verified by the Fisheries Research Institute.
  • Successfully detected early disease onset in specific pools and rapid response resulted in salvaging harvests.
  • Approached by Taiwanese and Japanese conglomerates to fund government green infrastructure projects.
