Shifting microbiological testing to reduce fish mortality due to pathogenic infections
KOA Biotech


One of the major problems arising in aquaculture facilities is the presence of bacterial and viral infections, implying up to 30% of annual production losses due to fish mortality. Seeing the global demand of protein sources in the growing population and the significant paper aquaculture can play on that, we are developing a solution to cover this market need, solving current limitations such as:

  1. Need of specializes technicians
  2. Sample collection and logistics to labs
  3. Detection timings as samples are sent once seeing mortality signs
  4. Use of antibiotics to fight infections

“We want to save up to 50% of current production losses”
