I run a fish hatchery in Texas and am curious if anyone else has used FarmOS in a hatchery or aquaculture setting?
I’ve emailed Mike, and he was kind enough to reply:
There has been some talk of folks using farmOS for aquaculture - although I’m not sure if anyone is yet. It’s certainly something that farmOS can accommodate! There isn’t a dedicated “aquaculture” module right now (perhaps building one in the future would be justified), but you could probably use the “Animal” asset type just fine right now. “Animal” assets can be used to represent individual animals (which would NOT be useful in your case haha), or a “head count” of animals with inventory increment/decrement tracking. I could imagine starting with a map of the fishery, with an “Area” for each pool, and then using an “Animal” asset to represent each “batch” of fish. The asset could be moved from area to area, and input logs can be recorded for feedings, harvest logs for harvests, as well as misc activities and observations."
He also recommended that I post the question here to see if anyone may be doing something similar.
