Skretting Ecuador has launched Skretting 360+, a package of precision-based innovative tools, incorporating precision nutrition, farm management practices and proactive technical support, all delivered via the Skretting AquaSim app.

Skretting 360+ provides a complete overview of the business, with full control of the total cycle. The development process began 20 years ago, when Skretting generated growth models for salmon and other fish species – the original AquaSim. Over the past 5 years, Skretting has been developing the concept for shrimp based on research, experimentation and validation. 

Research trials have been carried out at the Skretting ARC Hezhoubei Research Station in China, with validation trials at the Skretting Validation Station in Ecuador. On-farm validation under different conditions and challenges has taken place in Ecuador and Vietnam.

Skretting 360+ has the capability to benchmark the performance of each cycle and manage feed and harvest predictions customized to every pond. 

“We can’t do this without the commitment from our customers,” said Carlos Miranda, Managing Director Skretting Latin America. “The future is in our hands and the opportunity is now.”
