New software to help shrimp farming indsutry

The computer sciences division of Mexico's national polytechnic institute IPN has developed software that will allow shrimp farmers to diagnosis illness in their stocks, local daily El Universal reported.

The software processes the images of shrimp taken with a digital camera to determine if they are diseased. Latin America currently produces 215,000 tons of farmed shrimp a year from about 2,592 farms.
