Innovasea have developed a wireless aquaculture monitoring system called RealFish Pro, 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.
aquaEnvironment part of realfish pro
aquaEnvironment is a cloud-based software that allows the user to visualise their data in real-time, via computer, an iOS or Android app.
The software is user-friendly, provides analytic tools which enable 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. Through the aquaCurrent tab in Realfish Pro, you can also configure thresholds for key parameters per pen and turn on notifications on your preferred device to go off when these thresholds are exceeded (e.g. Temperature) or falling under (e.g. DO).
aquaEnvironment is now part of Innovasea’s new tool – Realfish Pro. In addition to environmental monitoring, Realfish Pro allows the integration of AI cameras for biomass monitoring, oxygenation and aeration systems (aquaControl), and enhanced phytoplankton logging and monitoring (aquaBloom).
aquaControl - Automated Aeration & Oxygen Control
Water quality is paramount, and Innovasea has developed aquaControl, a fully automated aeration and oxygenation system that helps to quickly mitigate various environmental challenges such as:
- Harmful algal blooms (HABs)
- Low dissolved oxygen events
- Temperature fluctuations
- Hydroid/Jellyfish infestations
aquaControl, as part of Realfish Pro, allows you to remotely monitor and adjust air and oxygen levels pen-by-pen across the entire site. The solution includes a first-of-its-kind digital valve system that’s securely controlled via computer or mobile device in real time and can be triggered automatically based on data from aquaMeasure sensors.
This solution helps you ensure a healthy environment for fish stock, improve growth and reduce CO2 footprint.
“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.”
“The aqua hub system is a great reliable piece of kit that helps us keep a constant eye on what’s happening in the water on the farm. Easy to install and very easy to read the data! ”
“The reliability and flexibility of the system, combined with a simple “no cables” setup and probably the best software on the market today with regards to ease of use, data presentation and accessibility greatly aids our husbandry for stock welfare and decision making.”
Fueled by leading-edge technology and a passion for research and development, Innovasea is revolutionizing aquaculture and advancing the science of fish tracking to make our oceans and freshwater ecosystems sustainable for future generations.
