Fishgator is an IoT (Internet of Thing) based platform on Ai-based fish cultivation and Data Management Systems. Fishgator has several main features, namely Automatic Feeder, which is an automatic feeding system for fish based on feed management to increase the amount of feed that comes out.
The next feature is an IoT-based water quality monitoring system that can be monitored using a smartphone. In addition to the above features FishGator also features circlebubble circulation system technology which is an oxygen circulation system that functions to stabilize oxygen levels in water.
In Indonesia itself, Fishgator has been implemented in the Situbondo and Wonosobo regions. In the future it is expected that all fish farmers in Indonesia will be used. With this proud achievement, of course, Fishgator can change the face of the Indonesian fisheries community in a better direction. The price of one fishgator unit is around IDR 20 million. Because it needs mass production.
