Aquaculture 4.0: technologies and innovations
Farm monitoring with underwater IoT networks and wearable sensors: SEASTAR
EMFF SEASTAR project has seen Wsense, Leroy Seafood Group and University of Bergen address the lack of full digitalization in the aquaculture sector, by exploiting innovative Internet of Underwater Things Technologies and integrating them with last-generation miniaturized wearable sensors to be placed on each fish. The resulting system is a completely innovative underwater infrastructure that, for the first time, will allow fish farmers to monitor the health of each fish remotely, in real time, and to gather relevant data for accurate risk assessment and forecasting. In addition, the project has developed market-ready underwater wireless telemetry systems used for both environmental and structural monitoring.
