Manolin is Norwegian software and data analytics firm focusing on building disease detection models to fuel sustainability in aquaculture. It has launched a new service that has the potential to alert farmers about the diseases in their area.
“We’re excited to let farmers instantly share critical disease information within a secure farmer-only network,” said Tony Chen, Manolin co-founder and CEO. This system is the first that notifies farmers of the potential risk which is not possible by Norway’s government regulators.
“Outbreaks of these diseases are growing and pose a huge threat to the industry,” said Chen. “This [new service] will give farms more time to plan biosecurity measures that can minimize the impact of these diseases for their area and the entire industry.”
Kristian Botnen, CEO of Lingalaks, a salmon farming company in Norway mentioned that the team is delighted about the update and it is a crucial step to manage diseases. There is no other solution as seamless as this; it is a reliable and secure way to share relevant disease information in the network and there would be ample time to evade the disease.
Alongside notifications for new diseases, Manolin also rolled out qualified tools and geospatial analysis on its platform. Anyone can open a free account and explore current and historic disease, lice and treatment data in their area.
