BIOMAR CHILE UNVEILS NEW AI SERVICE FOR SALMON FILLET QUALITY

“In addition to current services, we are proud to take a new technological step with the incorporation of artificial intelligence that allows us to obtain data on the quality of the fillet,” said Óscar Berríos, seawater product manager at BioMar. Our concern to go beyond the good results of salmon in the water and reach the final product led us to develop new tools with the same technology applied to our diets. A couple of years with a collaborative strategy between Lythium and BioMar first, and two salmon farmers later, field trials were completed.

“Currently, we have two units installed and three to be installed in processing plants. This innovation will facilitate adjusting formulation and feeding strategies with our clients while fish are still growing,” said Michael Adler, commercial manager of BioMar. Parameters such as color, gapping, melanosis and cracking can be obtained. Quality Box is transported in a small briefcase and can be used on a farm. “More than 15,000 daily data, for each equipment, have allowed us to correlate the entire growing cycle with the quality of the final product, such as strains, region, growing conditions, nutritional strategies, etc.,” said Berríos. “With this initiative, we are supporting an important step for BioMar and the industry in innovation and applied technology, especially for the quality of the final product of the salmon chain.
