Shrimp smart farming

Smart shrimp farming

We developed a shrimp smart aquaculture with almost zero environmental impact with digitized management system, with very accurate harvesting and therefore with a greater than traditional tropical countries(*) techniques economic result
* from where comes almost totally shrimps consumed in the EU

smart aquaculture

Technology Developer: Dr. Roberto Rabiti

DINAQUA Project Manager, Recirculating Acquaculture Solutions Expert

He has been involved in the construction of aquaculture farms in Italy and in the various countries in the Mediterranean and around the world since 1972. A list of the species for which he had designed and built aquaculture farms includes shrimp, lobster, eel, sea bass, mullet, white bream, perch, pike, tilapia and many others.

In 2003 – 2005 he directed the survey on the current state of fishing and aquaculture sector in Tuscany, where he played a main role in the training course for regional aquaculture technicians as an expert in RAS technics. A few years later he participated in integrated planning for the development of aquaculture in the Sardinia region.

Some countries where he has carried out consultancy at an international and government level: Japan, Philippines, Cuba, Senegal, Santo Domingo, Ghana, Chile, Brazil, Algeria, Tunisia.

the species

The great advantage of DINAQUA’s smart shrimp farming is its polyvalence factor, that is the possibility to choose the species to farm, ensuring the shortest ever cash-flow out during the launch stage, for the older stages instead – creating a possibility to respond the eminent market evolution in the future

Mazzancolle tropicali - White leg shrimp

Whiteleg shrimp

Shrimps got their origins from the Eastern Pacific Ocean, then reproduced for the first time in aquaculture in 1973 in Florida, known also as Pacific white shrimp or King prawn. It is one of the most farmed prawns in the world, thanks to its natural resistance to disease

Penaeus vannamei (PNV)

Gambero gigante indopacifico - Giant tiger prawn

Giant tiger prawn

Giant tiger prawn is the biggest one among those commonly commercialized. The carapace and abdomen are transversely banded with alternative dark and light colors, from that fact its name derives

Penaeus monodon (GIT)

Mazzancolle - Kuruma prawn

Kuruma prawn

They live in the western Indo-Pacific seas, but have reached also the Mediterranean Sea as an allochthonous species, where they have become the object of trawling, especially in Italy, considered often indigenous erroneously

Penaeus japonicus (KUP)

the advantages

Over one hectare of active filtration surface for each aquaculture module

We’ve improved the Shigueno method, born in Japan in the 1980s with the aim of achieving the economy of water thermostatisation in Mediterranean climatic conditions, we have managed to combine with a better economic performance the engineering aspect, management model and marketing strategy
The prove of the success of DINAQUA intelligent lobster farming is the 2-step filtration system: the draining bottom (1), accompanied by the percolation biological filter (2), which performs three functions: filters the water, facilitates oxygenation, acts as a heat exchanger

Improves balanced consumption of resources

With the application of AI, the management model is constantly improved. The husbandry model itself follows the objectives of the FarmToFork directive and reduces both energy consumption and CO2 emissions compared to the frozen supply chain

Requires few water thanks to continuous recirculation

In RAS aquaculture, water is continuously recycled, and for DINAQUA smart aquaculture even within completely autonomous module, so we make only with 1 complete water change in a month, followed by intense sanitary control including the quality of the water before releasing

Respects the biological cycle of the animal

Smart farming exploits the natural immune defenses of the animal, creating an optimal and controlled and healthy environment, completely excludes the need for antibiotics, while constant oxidation prevents the production of toxic substances from anoxic degradation

Improves payback period of investment

Thanks to the characteristic of modularity, consequently with a lower investment threshold for start-up, accompanied by the choice of the species and the fact of short construction period (just a few month), we have really quick the exit in cash, so much shorter payback period

the oysters

We stand for the polyculture IMTA model by cultivating bivalves, namely oysters, mussels, scallops, etc. in the same circuits, using their important role of bio-sanitizers. In this way, we can manage better the bacterial component and organic particulate, producing at the same time high-value commercial biomass at relatively low co

Lorenzo Di Fazio, Co-fondatore SeaFarm

We’ve found immediately great support from the DINAQUA team and we’ve been instructed to hold local and regional authoritie’s meetings to present our business idea, and to interact successfully with landowners also, so my experience is extremely positive
