Fish farmers can now improve water quality in their pens via PC or mobile device
BOSTON – Innovasea, a global leader in technologically advanced aquatic solutions for aquaculture and fish tracking, today introduced a revolutionary aeration and oxygenation system to help ocean-based fish farms better control water quality, protect fish stocks from algae blooms and maximize growth rates.
Now in use at a salmon farm in Canada, the automated solution features a first-of-its-kind digital valve system that’s controlled remotely via computer or mobile device, giving farm operators greater control over environmental conditions without having to be on-site to make adjustments.
“This is an important breakthrough for fish farmers because it helps them instantly react to changing environmental conditions to keep their fish safe and healthy,” said Tim Stone, Innovasea’s vice president of product development. “We’re giving them a whole new level of control 24/7 no matter where they are – whether it’s at the farm or half a world away.”
The new aeration and oxygenation system is part of Innovasea’s complete aquaControl solution, which give farms the ability to easily monitor environmental conditions and make adjustments within individual pens or across the entire site. This gives farm operators the ability to combat:
- Deadly algae blooms
- Temperature fluctuations
- Jellyfish infestations
- Low levels of dissolved oxygen
“Our end-to-end aquaControl solution takes a lot of the guesswork out of fish farming and enables operators to quickly and easily make data-driven decisions to ensure fish have the healthiest environment possible to grow,” said Stone.
Fueled by leading-edge technology and a passion for research and development, Innovasea is revolutionizing aquaculture and advancing the science of fish tracking to make our oceans and freshwater ecosystems sustainable for future generations. With 250 employees worldwide, we provide full end-to-end solutions for fish farming and aquatic species research – including quality equipment that’s efficient and built to last, expert consulting services, and innovative platforms and products that deliver unrivaled data, information and insights.
