Shrimps are now considered as the most lucrative seafood product with demand growing from consumers due to their high nutritional value. This is reflected in the export figures with the two largest exporters of shrimps, Ecuador and India, seeing increases of 7.6% and 10.8% respectively in the first half of 2016. Due to their perishable nature, it is imperative for shrimp producers to maximise their profitability and reduce the risk of wasted stock either from theft, unfavourable weather conditions or a sub-optimal production environment – particularly with increasing demand and high revenue opportunities at stake.

AZLOGICA, a Latin American IoT company, turned to Ubuntu to help their client, Oceanos, maximise shrimp production and revenues utilising Ubuntu Core and Dell Edge Gateways. As a result of this collaboration, Oceanos saw production increases up by 28% through use of sensors on key metrics such as water quality as well as seeing a payback time of just six months. For AZLOGICA, using Ubuntu and Ubuntu Core across their desktops, servers and on the Dell Edge Gateways enabled them to optimise resource and reduce development time.
