Using IoT solutions to make aquaculture operations more efficient and eco-friendly.
With the development of new technologies, aquaculture has transformed from labour-intensive farming to mechanized aquaculture and automated systems.
Aquaculture companies are adopting technologies such as smart sensors to measure water quality along remote connectivity over cellular LoRaWAN and satellite that pull in data to be reviewed using cloud-based analytic software tools. This makes aquaculture operations more efficient and even eco-friendly.
An example would be the collection of data on fish size, water quality, feeding patterns and local weather conditions using sensors connected over a wireless network. Combined with other data, the algorithms work together to provide recommendations such as feeding management strategies and optimal harvest dates.
Smart Aquaculture applications include
Prediction of Environmental Changes with IoT Technology
Sensors are used to collect important climatic conditions such as salinity, cleanliness, water temperature and depth, barometric pressure and sea-tide height.
Counting Fishing Fish with IoT Technology
The use of AI and computer vision makes it easy to count and size organisms such as shrimp larvae.
Watching Fishy Behaviour with IoT Technology
Sensors and machine learning are used to detect and determine when fish are ready to feed to avoid wasting money on overfeeding.
Ocean Research with IoT Technology
Sensors collect and transmit oceanographic data which is used to assess environmental impacts and optimize farming operations.
Tracking & Tracing
Smart aquaculture that uses IoT technologies allows you to track data such as where the fish were raised, when they were harvested and the type of feed they received. Reports of where and when the fish were processed including a temperature profile of the product from when it was harvested are also made.
IoT technologies allow aquaculture companies to monitor water quality which also helps to minimize the impact on fragile water environments.
The aquaculture industry is leveraging the power of IoT to make aquaculture operations more efficient and eco-friendly.
