The eFisher is a fully automated smart feeder that measures the hunger levels of fish before dispensing the appropriate amount of fish food. Designed for both small-scale and large-scale fisheries, the system is equipped with sensors that detect behavior suggestive of hunger, before responding by dispensing food.

After detecting hunger levels, the machine releases customized amount of feed and sends real-time activity reports to the farmer's smartphone.

Ultimately, the eFishery system reduces the amount of fish feed used by 21 percent. This system could go a long way towards increasing the efficiency of industrial fish farms, where overfeeding is something that increases costs and can also detrimentally affect the health of fish and their environment.
