Internet of Things for healthy fish and environment
The goal of WP5 is to exploit the potential of the Internet of Things (IoT) to address the challenges of a sustainable and resilient aquaculture system that ensures profitability, maintains healthy aquatic ecosystems and strengthens capacity for adaptation to climate change.
For this purpose, we will develop and implement a real-time wireless communication system to simultaneously monitor the activity and physiology of fish and the main parameters of the environment where they are farmed.
We will monitor the impact of housing environments and innovative diets on fish health and welfare, during large-scale demonstration activities carried out in sustainable breeding and production systems parts, by collecting and integrating Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
The specific objectives of this monitoring are:
- Integrating remote monitoring and signals communication from sensors tracking the activity pattern and physiological status of fish, with co-located instruments / sensors that record the environmental parameters.
- Collecting the main KPIs during large-scale demonstration activities.
- Integrating several KPIs to make diagnosis, by using Preference Modelling techniques.
- Collecting records of KPIs (historical data series in one farm or data set from many farms) to identify patterns and make forecast by using Generalized Linear or Additive Models.
