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’.
