ID Water is an agricultural climate technology company focused on the integration of smart aquaculture and smart forestry. We are dedicated to leveraging the concept of NbS (Nature-based Solutions) and have innovated a solution called "MAPS."
Our unique indoor aquaculture model significantly increases production efficiency per unit area while reducing labor costs. Through our in-house developed artificial intelligence, water quality sensors, robot technology, and the inclusion of insurance mechanisms (GAIC - UK Aquaculture Disease Insurance) and solar integration not available to traditional aquaculturists, we have made twenty years of stable aquaculture production possible. We are paving the way for sustainable aquaculture's future. The wastewater generated by our intelligent shrimp farming facilities is reused for mangrove fertilization, increasing carbon sequestration capacity by over 50% annually.

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.
