Aquaticode, a Stavanger, Norway-based developer of technology that boosts global seafood production and improves operational and biological efficiency, announced that it raised $6 million in Series A funding and is ready to revolutionize the aquaculture industry.
The funds will be used to speed up projects that detect, identify, and predict relevant performance traits in a variety of marine species.
The fundraising round and the incoming sales revenue allow us to fulfill the market’s demand for our machines. This enables a transition from start-up to scale-up while maintaining a healthy balance between short-term operations and long-term R&D,” says Stian Rognlid, Aquaticode’s CEO
Aquaticode is launching its first two products in September, both capable of identifying gender in juvenile salmon through non-invasive methods: SORTmini (portable scanner), and SORTpro (an automatic, high-speed machine).
