Satellite technology is offering new ways to monitor and improve aquaculture

Fish Farming is an area that satellite technology is already supporting a wide variety of areas: The large scale, remote locations, and complex subject makes fish farming the ideal candidate for the use of earth observation satellites.

HSAT wants to improve existing systems and as well adding new capabilities. 

Satellites can detect changes in pollution levels, the build-up of plankton, currents, wind direction, and the quality of water. This data, combined with local sensors can use protect and improve fish health, examples include:

  • Pollution levels
  • Oxygen crashes
  • Predictions for risks to fish health
  • Prediction and identification of Algae Blooms
