Optimizing feed use, growth and welfare in sea cages through development of oxygen sensor with 360 degree camera surveillance (FitFISH) (39436)

Project Details


The aim of the project is to develop an improved feeding schedule for sea cages by means of intelligent monitoring of oxygen conditions and fish behaviour. It is anticipated that farmers can save 50 grams of feed per kg fish produced using a feeding schedule that takes oxygen conditions into account. The project will develop a new and more advanced system for monitoring water quality and fish behaviour in sea cages. As an add on the monitoring will include 360 degree video surveillance in the cages, and the system will be able to profile the water column.

The project is coordinated by University of Copenhagen and funded by the Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark through the Green Development and Demonstration Program (GUDP).
