The involvement of e-commerce giant Amazon in aquaculture went a step further last week with a visit to one of Leroy’s salmon sites in Norway.

US feed giant Cargill currently collaborates with Amazon Web Services (AWS), selling aquaculture feed EWOS via the AWS cloud, a step into the digitalization of the aquaculture industry that, according to executives from both firms, will be crucial and beneficial for everyone.

Glenn Gore, head of architecture for AWS, told IntraFish that technology has a major role to play in the development of the salmon industry.
