IT-solutions for environmental control of trout farms (39094)

Project Details

Description

In the project a IT-solution for direct reporting of environmental performance data from trout farms to the Municipality registration system was developed. Also, calculations of compliance with allowances etc. can be calculated and evaluated regularly by the farmer.

DTU Aqua further developed a discharge prediction model, able to calculate the resulting discharge from a ModelTroutFarm of any given layout and dimensions. This model ("Dambrugsmodellen" i.e. "the Trout Farm Model") is based on the existing Produktionsbidragsmodel ("Waste Production Model") and data and monitoring results from all treatment devices added and incorporated into a prediktive model. Both models are now widely used by the authorities as well as in the industry.

This project was coordinated by the Danish Aquaculture Association and funded by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries and the European Fisheries Fund (EFF).
