“This is a true breakthrough moment for our company and the industry as a whole. The last few months have been a culmination of many years of work—integrating numerous data silos, filling the gaps in industry data, expanding on academia’s disease research, and making it accessible for all farmers with user-friendly software,” says Manolin CTO and co-founder John Costantino.

Manolin’s machine learning models are powered by millions of data points including live disease outbreak reports, oceanographic forecasts, marine sensors, boat traffic, marine activity across all 600 active farms, and more than two decades of historical data.

Tore Holand, board member in several Norwegian farm companies, says, “It’s important for the industry to continue to raise its standards. Manolin has built a tool that doesn’t replace but works with farmers’ experience and expertise. With these types of insights, farmers can keep finding new ways to rethink their processes and improve. To be a part of the future, one needs to keep up with the technological advances.”

Manolin’s customers represent some of the most innovative and sustainable farms in the world including Kvarøy Fiskeoppdrett, Lingalaks, Hofseth Aqua, and Firda Seafood.

Manolin raised 8 million NOK last fall from Boost VC, Hatch AS, and Innovation Norway, and the team recently grew their fish health and engineering teams. They are expanding their advanced forecasting tools to include feeding, growth, and mortality models for farmers.
