Aquaculture Intelligence system will monitor dissolved oxygen and temperature at each farm by using cableless sensors.
In a press release, Innovasea’s UK distributor RS Aqua writes that Mowi will be using (AI) systems to monitor twenty of its Scottish salmon farms.
RS Aqua supplies marine instrumentation and submersible systems to scientists and engineers.
The AI system will monitor dissolved oxygen and temperature at each farm by using cableless sensors. In turn, this will provide the farms, central management, and the Mowi fish health teams with real-time data and alerts on changing oxygen concentrations.
It uses a wireless aquaculture monitoring system called aquaCurrent, which allows producers to monitor environmental conditions online in real-time.
Aquatic technology outfit InnovaSea Systems, known for its spherical Aquapod containment system, last month bought a manufacturing facility in Bedford, Nova Scotia.
“The Bedford facility has been the ideal site for us to manufacture our best-in-class fish tracking and aquaculture intelligence products,” said David Kelly, CEO of Innovasea. “The opportunity to transition from tenant to owner made financial sense for a host of reasons and will also give us full control over how we can use the building going forward,” he added.
