Questions this practice may help answer:

  • How can data provided by automatic sensor from salmon farms be used to spot environmental trends and ensure the farm's viability In relation to climate change?

Implementation Context:

Consumer demand for seafood keeps increasing and so does global salmon production, calling for sophisticated monitoring strategies to enable and maintain proper fish production.

Aspects / Objectives:

This study aims to demonstrate how new technologies will be essential to support salmon production to meet productivity goals while respecting environmental constraints.


This approach can be replicated in other aquaculture farms (shellfish, algae etc…) to support them in meeting their production and environmental goals in relation to climate change.
