Support to Aquaculture and Fishery Industry

Objective

The objective of SAFI project is to exploit Earth Observation resources to support fishery and aquaculture industries in marine coastal regions. The service, based on additive value brought by a network of SMEs, is adapted to each category of targeted users, and aims to realize the following points by making the best use of emerging EO products:

1-Develop a service to assist aquaculture deployment (optimization of cages location w.r.t. to environmental and ecological context) and environmental monitoring during operations
2- Develop a service to support fishery by providing indicators of recruitments, abundances, and shell/fish locations (and its variability due to climate change)
3-Set up a network of SMEs at different levels of expertise (and EO awareness) required by the service – and to build a consistent and marketable offer.
4-Evaluate the capacity of exportation and acceptance of this service
5-Foster the use of sentinel 2 and sentinel 3 data

The project will finally lead to the development, deployment and evaluation of an integrated web-GIS, broadcasting SAFI indicators to the various user concerned (industrials, public administrations in charge of fishery/aquaculture planning, EO service providers, great public) that will be feed by a service of EO high level data processing.

SAFI stands for ‘Service to Aquaculture and Fishery Industry’.
