Next March 2, 3 and 4, 2022, a new version of the international fair AquaSur will be held in Puerto Montt, Los Lagos region. Internexa Chile will present its product BIoT, Business Internet of Things, at the occasion where the national and international aquaculture industry will meet. BIoT is a tool that allows various devices such as sensors, cameras, robots and others, to communicate with each other, collecting huge volumes of data or Big Data, which, in turn, give way to the work of Artificial Intelligence, which is responsible for analyzing instantly, through powerful software, all this information collected to obtain predictions and automatic learning. It is important to note that, despite the pandemic, at the product level, in 2021 salmon occupied the second place in value exported after copper. The third and fourth place of exported products was occupied by cherries (US$ 1,807) and bottled wine (US$ 1,618). In this sense, Chile was positioned in 2021 as the second largest producer of salmon worldwide, concentrating 27% of global production and reaching US$5,180 million, as reported by the Chilean Salmon Council in its annual balance[1]. “The incorporation of these state-of-the-art technologies has allowed the industry to achieve higher production, better efficiency and cost reduction in this aquaculture sector. And, in this sense, innovation in aquaculture is the next step to face the needs of future feed consumption and improve the sustainability of the sector,” said Miguel De Rasis, Account Manager of Internexa. Thus, in parallel to the growth of the industry, technology has been advancing in order to achieve better control. For this, the measurement of parameters is of vital importance, therefore, they have been increased and improved, and most of them are obtained with advanced in situ technology, which allows making productive, sanitary and/or emergency decisions at the minute. Some of the parameters that can be measured today with the use of this technology are: oxygen, temperature, pH and water turbidity; winds, currents or fuel levels; feed dispersion, amount of feed supplied, satiety, predator control, among others. Being able to obtain these parameters and process them for better controls, allows to improve and anticipate several problems that can translate into important production losses. For example, not using this technology can mean going in a couple of days from 3% mortality (a very good margin) to 25%, simply because of an undetected low oxygen level, explains De Rasis. The Chilean salmon farming sector exported more than 700 thousand tons of product during 2021[2], in that industry, according to the Chilean Salmon Council, the average cost per kilo was US$8.4 during the third quarter of last year. Therefore, not carrying out adequate monitoring and/or forecasting can have great economic consequences due to the losses of a harvest. Therefore, from stand A354, InterNexa Chile will be highlighting the importance and benefits of the use of this technology in one of the most important industries for the country. Additionally, it will present the technical talk entitled “Impacting productivity rates with IoT and Artificial Intelligence” by Jhon Jairo Mira, Product Manager of InterNexa, which, among other topics, will address how to generate intelligent spaces beyond data.
