Uddenfeldt said he had heard buzz in Silicon Valley about Aquabyte and was intrigued by the company’s leadership in a critical new industry, as well as its complex systemic solutions.

“Aquabyte is delivering very advanced hardware and software, using Smart AI and Computer Vision to improve and disrupt the fish farming industry and make it more efficient and sustainable. The product is very important itself, but it’s really a complex system business, in a way I recognize from the network industry. I think I can be of use there, ” Uddenfeldt said.

Aquabyte was born in Silicon Valley but its technology is, for obvious reasons, deployed mostly in salmon farms in Norway.

“The market for sustainable fish is going to grow, and that is very promising. Plus, of course it’s fun that it’s in Norway. I look forward to contributing to the synergy of Scandinavian and Silicon Valley culture,” he added.

Aquabyte CEO Bryton Shang noted that Uddenfeldt’s global experience with roots in Scandinavia and Silicon Valley mirrors his company’s current scope as well as its future ambitions.

“Dr. Uddenfeldt’s achievements stand on their own, and we are honored that he will join our Board of Directors. I am excited to tap his deep experience in blending the contributions of international teams to bring the strongest product to market,” said Shang.
