Biomass Daily - Vaki

Biomass Daily

The new way of getting your biomass data

With a Biomass Daily frame placed permanently in each cage fish are continually measured with pinpoint accuracy. For every site and every cage the daily overview of average weight, size distribution, condition-factor and growth is available 24/7.

Biomass Daily provides you with:

  • Overview of all cages and live data accessible online
  • Larger samples, more accuracy
  • Daily information on average weight and size distribution
  • Average condition factor and distribution
  • Live data from all cages accessible online 
  • Simple but powerful analysis of data
  • No stress to the fish and no disturbance to the feeding

Accurate information ensures optimal decisions

  • Real time comparisons between cages and sites.
  • Changes in growth patterns detected as soon as they occur.
  • Select optimum cages and dates for harvest.
  • Optimise grading and splitting.
  • Lower Conversion Factor with better utilization of feed.

Main benefits

  • Accurate average weight, distribution and condition factor.
  • Continuous measurements (multiple reference points).
  • Real time overview of all cages.
  • Larger samples.
  • Growth rate displayed over any time period.
  • Stress free sampling for fish and staff (frame remains in cage).
  • Increased Bio Security.

Other benefits include

  • Instant access to all biomass information online
  • No specialist needed to operate equipment and gather data
  • Remote monitoring of the operational status of the system and components
  • Periodic performance monitoring
  • Accurate reporting and accounting of biomass

Main Features

  • Frame installed in every cage
  • Wireless transmission from cage to barge
  • Automatic calculation of size and condition factor (CF)
  • Continuous measurements, 24 hours, 7 days a week
  • All data accessible on the Internet
  • Automatic reporting

Easy installation and operation

A frame is placed in each cage and the wireless radio link from the cage automatically transfers the data to a central base. All measurements are available in a web-based reporting application, which can automatically send daily detailed reports to selected recipients. With Biomass Daily the fish farmer has more time to attend other tasks and fish are not exposed to unnecessary stress.

3 sizes of frame

VAKI now offers three sizes of frames depending on cage size, fish density and size.

  • The FR800 frame is optimal for those cages that have low density or may have difficulties with low fish numbers in the measured sample.
  • The FR550 frame is widely used in smaller cages or where the density is high.
  • The FR300 frame is used in landbased tanks measuring smolts down to 50 gr.
  • The software is the same for all frame version.

 

Sending box

  • Wireless transmission of data from cage to PC.
  • Live data from all cages assessible 24/7.

Sonar

Tools for optimal positioning of the Biomass Daily frames

  • Sonar for monitoring the fish behaviour
  • Depth Sensor to register accurate position
  • Winches used to control the position of the frame
The Software - the use of data
  • Reporting accurate weight and size distribution to harvest
  • Lower overall FCR with focus on periodic FCR
  • Monitoring growth, comparing to environmental factors
  • Controlling production wrt. Maximum Biomass Allowance
  • Correcting growth models with data on real growth
  • Decisions on grading or splitting
  • Correct insurance value and for internal reporting

 

Continuous measurements night and day

Measures 24/7 regardless of visibility or time of day, ensures that the measured fish are a good mix from the whole population in the pen.

 


 

The Dashboard

Easy to monitor all cages and many sites


 

The Growth Trend

Daily measurements based on thousands of fish over a long period of time.

With Biomass Daily fish is measured continuously and the data is collected over a long period. Thus, it is possible to follow the growth curve and therefore focus on the feed conversion and growth, whether it is in line with temperature, feeding and othe factors affecting fish growth.
