Thai Researchers Study RFID for Managing Prawns and Other Food Fish

Aug 05, 2008—Researchers in Thailand are investigating the benefits of radio frequency identification for tracking prawns and fish to monitor growth and improve breeding. According to project leader Rungtawan Panakulchaiwat, staff members with the department of fisheries science at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang have successfully embedded passive RFID tags in giant prawns, Nile tilapia and walking catfish. The team released preliminary results of trials examining the use of RFID to monitor broodstock—cultured species that are kept separate for breeding.
