HiSea to Reveal Special High-Resolution Information Platform at Aquaculture Europe 2021

The HiSea Project will demonstrate how water quality data can improve aquaculture operations, lower costs, and anticipate damaging events.

Madeira, Portugal, September 29, 2021 – The EU-funded HiSea Project will hold a demonstration of the benefits of high-resolution water quality data services to the aquaculture industry on 7 October as part of the Aquaculture Europe 2021 conference.

Aquaculture professionals, and others interested in maintaining see water quality, are invited to participate in the event, which will take place in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. The event will demonstrate how the HiSea platform can lower maintenance costs, upgrade performance and anticipate damaging events to mitigate negative impact.

HiSea developed innovative services for the aquaculture sector to provide reliable and accurate historical data, forecasts and alerts regarding water quality parameters and whether conditions, without the need to install instruments on site, by using data obtained from satellites. 

The webinar will focus on: 

  • Real time, historical data and forecast of weather and water quality information including currents, waves, oxygen levels, turbidity, microbiology or sea and air temperatures to implement effective and efficient aquaculture management.
  • Improvement of procedures with impact on daily operation such as tide forecasts.
  • Advanced data analytics and performance indicators.
  • Early warning and anticipation of harmful events by means of forecasting their probable timing, magnitude and location. By allowing the simulation of alternative actions, the service will contribute to mitigate adverse effects on operations and environmental impacts.

“The Aquaculture Europe 2021 provides us with an excellent opportunity to meet representatives of the European aquaculture industry and provide them with a hands-on experience of using the HiSea Platform,” said Dr Ghada El Serafy from Deltares, HiSea Project coordinator. “We have received data from aquaculture users, which has enabled us to present highly accurate information that meets fish farms specific needs.” 

The workshop will include sessions on real-use cases, a demonstration of the HiSea platform and a roundtable discussion on end-user feedback. Moreover, a hands-on session will be held in order for participants to directly interact with the HiSea platform.
