Designed in Silicon Valley - Made in Norway

Aquaculture meets machine learning.

Using our smart camera system, we allow you to automatically count sea lice and accurately measure biomass in real-time.

Aquabyte surpasses modern farm monitoring products with our machine learning platform and smart camera system.

Our solution offers easy installation, continuous monitoring and multiple applications.

Lice Counting

Industry leading sea lice recognition and counting enables preemptive decision making.

Biomass Estimation

Biomass estimation to within >99% accuracy at any point in time allows accurate projections.

Appetite Detection

Accurate appetite detection improves rates of feed conversion while reducing waste.

Feed Optimization

Recommended feed amounts are calculated based on fish size and activity.

We are helping to build the global food systems of tomorrow.

Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing sectors of food production on the planet, offering a meaningful solution to global food deficits. Aquabyte’s mission is to be the best software tech company creating environmentally sound and sustainable food production.

Smart camera system

Aquabyte is developing a smart camera system and web dashboard built on cutting edge computer vision technology. Our platform will allow for an unprecedented level of industry optimization, resulting in increased yields and greater profit for farm owners.

Installation is easy - we simply install a camera in your net pen, and provide you with a web dashboard to monitor real-time metrics.
