Watershed is a game-changing platform designed to empower fish farms with proactive, real-time fish health management across all their farm sites. By utilising predictive analytics, Watershed keeps farmers constantly aware of risks to their farms, allowing them to devote more time to forecasting metrics and benchmarking their performance, gaining invaluable insights into their operations. Watershed's benchmarking capabilities allow farms to identify precisely what strategies work best for their farm and why, enabling strategic growth with unparalleled efficiency.

“Manolin’s data intelligence platform has been instrumental in overcoming common barriers such as reporting and insights. It enables us to unlock the full potential of our farm data, providing real-time visibility and empowering us to make data-driven decisions with confidence,” stated Håvard Olsen, CEO of Norwegian salmon farming company Kvarøy Fiskeoppdrett.

The platform offers two tiers - the free Researcher tier, streamlining data for research purposes, and the paid Explorer tier, which provides comprehensive farm site visualisation, benchmarking and live alerts on production issues.

"With Watershed, we are empowering fish farmers to grow smarter and faster," stated Tony Chen, CEO of Manolin. "The Researcher tier expedites data analysis for research purposes, while the Explorer tier takes farm site visualisation and benchmarking to the next level. Farmers can now have real-time alerts, forecasts, and critical insights at their fingertips, all in one centralised platform. Watershed opens up new possibilities for proactive management and sustainable growth in aquaculture."

Meanwhile Manolin states that Harpoon is “the platform that revolutionises product research and market positioning for aquaculture suppliers. By enabling benchmarking against industry standards, Harpoon empowers companies to set realistic goals, optimise features and refine marketing strategies. Through comprehensive analysis and understanding of success variables, aquaculture suppliers can enhance usability, increase retention, and create products that resonate with their farm customers. Harpoon's research platform streamlines in-field testing, identifies pain points, and nurtures customer relationships, positioning suppliers as trusted partners in the aquaculture journey.”

"Harpoon is a transformative platform that empowers aquaculture suppliers to reach new heights in product research and market understanding," said John Costantino, CTO of Manolin. "With Harpoon, companies can now benchmark their products against industry standards, set realistic goals, and optimise features for enhanced market positioning. This level of data intelligence provides invaluable insights that nurture customer relationships and establishes our clients as leaders in the aquaculture industry. We are excited to witness the positive impact Harpoon will have on our clients' growth and success."

According to Manolin, industry leaders such as Veramaris and Cargill are already experiencing unparalleled gains through using Harpoon, saving thousands of hours in research time while obtaining expert in-field insights within months, not years.
