Aquaculture automation and optimization
For the salmon and trout farming industry to capitalize on its projected growth, significant changes are needed to reduce high operational costs and to overcome difficult environmental conditions.
The aquaculture industry faces a number of operational challenges, mainly related to maintaining the quality of the seafood products, controlling the cost and the composition of feed, and controlling the costs related to the production at sea. These issues can all be addressed with the help of process automation and optimization. As is common in the world of food production, every stage of fish farming and production adheres to strict best practice and guidelines. Cloud computing and big data technologies make it possible to gather massive amounts of data for traceability and process optimization.
