“Our innovative fish counting systems provide unrivaled control and accuracy, which helps fish famers increase productivity and make better decisions,” says Julius Bjarni Bjarnason, who heads sales for VAKI in the US and Western Canada. “Our wellboat counters are easy to use, they have high capacity, and deliver very valuable information directly to the fish farmer. There’s nothing like it on the market.”
The range of Channel Counters, which can accurately count fish from 50g, and integrate with VAKI’s other solutions, including the VAKI Cloud and VAKI SmartFlow System, to deliver even more benefits to fish farmers. The Channel Counter can process upwards of 330T/hour, also supports size estimation.
Additionally, the fish counter automatically logs all critical information so that farmers can easily reference it at any point in time.
Diverse Product Range
While the Wellboat Channel Counter brings transformation to the aquaculture industry, it’s not the only such product in VAKI’s product portfolio. For example, the company’s SmartFlow System enables users to automate the grading process, monitor and store information related to the graded and counted fish. This allows them to easily compare sizes and numbers while increasing the efficiency and accuracy of fish farming operations.
Moreover, the SmartFlow System includes automatic density control to enhance grading, a fish pump that regulates pumping speed to ensure optimal operation, a smart grader that automatically sorts fish, which can be both monitored and controlled centrally.
