Sea Warden is an early-stage technology company focused on solving data challenges in the aquaculture industry through remote monitoring. We monitor aquaculture using satellites, AI, and data from farmers using our mobile platform. We are focused first on shrimp aquaculture.

The shrimp farming industry relies heavily on in-person farm visits to conduct operations. Technician visits to farms are costly and only so many farms can be served by a technician. The lack of verifiable data makes it difficult to prove that production was conducted in a responsible manner. Certifications are expensive and difficult to obtain because of the cost of annual in-person audits. There are millions of production ponds around the world and it’s difficult to know which ponds are active or how productive/stable the production of these ponds are. Finally, many farmers have poor access to capital because they do not have sufficient financial or farm performance history records.

The lack of verifiable data makes it difficult to prove that production was conducted in a responsible manner. Certifications are expensive and difficult to obtain because of the cost of annual in-person audits. There are millions of production ponds around the world and it’s difficult to know which ponds are active or how productive/stable the production of these ponds are. Finally, many farmers have poor access to capital because they do not have sufficient financial or farm performance history records.

We help feed and input suppliers, certification programs, and impact financiers locate and monitor shrimp production at specific farm sites or across entire regions--providing cost savings and efficiency in new customer acquisition, due-diligence, and risk-management.

Sea Warden provides two services to support the shrimp farming industry: Regional Monitoring and Farm Site Monitoring. With Regional Monitoring we detect and analyze all the ponds in a production area (i.e. Mekong Delta). We determine pond productivity for the past 4 years to estimate crop stability, yield, equipment utilization, etc using satellite observation, artificial intelligence and machine learning. With this information we can direct feed/input/equipment suppliers to ideal customers. We also help impact investors and certification programs find ideal farms to work with. With Farm Site Monitoring, these customers can build a portfolio of many farms and monitor them remotely by satellite observation and using our automated WhatsApp farmer support app. Our users can send technicians or auditors less frequently by using our platform. Farmers use our app because it mimics the existing relationship they are already familiar with. In exchange for photo-verified production data, we provide them with market insights, farmgate price, and 24/7 farm support.
