Enabling Precision Aquaculture with multi-variable real-time sensing and Copernicus Earth Observation data

Project description

Tapping into a sea of opportunities with precision aquaculture

Sustainable aquaculture alone cannot meet the growing demand for fish in Europe, where 57 % of seafood consumed is currently imported. Precision fish farming and new technology are required to fully realise aquaculture’s potential. The EU-funded Undersee project will provide a scalable and easy to use plug-and-play integrated solution to monitor and collect aquaculture data from Copernicus Earth Observation forecasts and cloud computing services. This will enable real-time assessment of various factors such as pH, pollutants, temperature, oxygen or salinity levels, as well as alarms in case of anomalies such as harmful algae blooms that can kill marine life. The project launched its first pilot Lisbon in April 2019.
