Ohad Maiman explained that he knew firsthand what the salmon farming experience was like. “I am convinced that while the ability to grow fish to market size on land has been proven, significant room for improvements in operational excellence and efficiencies remains, and ReelData AI is at the forefront of developing these capabilities.”

Maiman’s relationship with ReelData began in November 2021, when The Kingfish Company implemented its inaugural product, ReelAppetite. RealData’s AI-driven product automated a feeding system that monitors fish appetite.

Mathew Zimola, CEO and co-founder of ReelData said that Ohad had been his friend and mentor long before the official agreement. “It was an easy decision to officially welcome him,” he said. He further explained that with his knowledge and experience the business will be able to expand and help the land-based aquaculture sector.

The news follows a successful month in which the company raised a Series A round of funding in which they closed $8 million in a deal led by Buoyant Ventures and S2G Ventures.
