Innovations for Irish Aquaculture: Short Video Interviews – Part 10

17/12/2020

Learn more about how computer technologies can inform feeding decisions on salmon farms and provide access to data on aquaculture activities across Europe.

Despite the challenges that 2020 has brought us, this year has provided a wonderful opportunity for us to highlight innovations and technologies that are relevant to the Irish Aquaculture community, through the wonder of the internet.

In previous weeks, we have looked at topics varying from fish health (Part 1), seaweed (Part 2), genetics (Part 3), filtration systems (Part 6), sensors (Part 9) and public perception (Part 8) to services that are available to support aquaculture businesses (Part 4 and Part 5). This week, we look at two ways that computer-based technologies can be used to support and inform the aquaculture industry.

First, we would like to introduce you to Vidar Myhre, who is a former operations manager and feed coordinator on a salmon farm in Norway, and the founder of SpillFree Analytics AS.  He presents a variety of computerised tools that have been developed to support aquaculture farmers in several ways including the improvement of feeding performance.   To find out more, watch the video, by clicking here.

And the second showcase interview is that held with Séverine Renault who is a consultant at AND International. Séverine introduced us to the EMODnet Human Activities portal that makes available information on the geographical position, spatial extent and attributes of a wide array of marine and maritime human activities throughout Europe, including aquaculture.  To find out more, watch the video, by clicking here.

Do you have knowledge to share?  Are you looking for a solution to help your aquaculture business?

If you would like to be interviewed and featured on the IATiP website, we would love to hear from you.  For all enquiries, please contact Intrigo Senior Project Manager, Georgia Bayliss-Brown, by email (georgia@intrigo.eu).
