Innovasea have developed a wireless aquaculture monitoring system called aquaCurrent, which allows producers to monitor environmental conditions online in real time. Each farm is populated with a suite of cable-less sensors called aquaMeasure. These use a unique underwater acoustic protocol to send data to a central unit called aquaHub.
AquaMeasure is a family of compact, submersible environmental sensors with underwater and in-air wireless communications. Combining this technology with real time cloud-based data management, aquaMeasure delivers an intuitive & unique user experience.
All aquaMeasure sensors measure temperature and tilt alongside their initial parameter, such as Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Salinity (SAL), DO/Depth (DOD), Chlorophyll (CHLA), Turbidity, BG Algae (Freshwater & Marine) and CDOM/FDOM. Each sensor enables large amounts of data, are easy to install, factory calibrated and robust to even the harshest ocean conditions.
AquaHub Telemetry Box
AquaHub is the core of the Aquaculture Intelligence system, it is situated at the surface and can be easily mounted on to existing infrastructure or feed barges. The Hub receives real time data via a multi-channel hydrophone deployed in 10 m water depth and can support up to 100 sensors within a 500 m range.
With the understanding of remote aquaculture environments, the aquaHub was developed with a variety of telemetry communications such as SMS, Iridium Satellite Network and Wi-Fi. It is also designed in a robust, waterproof housing to withstand harsh open ocean conditions.
AquaCurrent Online System
AquaCurrent is a cloud-based software which allows the user to visualise their data in real time, via computer or iOS and Android app.
The software is user friendly, provides analytic tools which enables the data to be viewed in a preferred format, can easily group data together for analysis, and offers information on battery health for each aquaMeasure sensor.
AquaCurrent can also help to prevent mortality events by letting you know if something is wrong at any time via notifications and alerts which provide crucial updates in real time.
“Excellent Program - it's a staple for what we do on the farm now.”
“The equipment is reliable, easy to install and the aquaCurrent software has been helpful.”
“The aquaMeasure sensors are easy to use and install within the system - they've completely changed how we monitor the farm.”
