Please Note: This public event is open to all visitors in Aquaculture Europe 2021, but pre-registration is required. By registering, you agree that the HiSea Project can send you notifications.

This webinar is organised by the EU-funded HiSea Project.

The EU-funded HiSea Project invites you to participate in a demonstration workshop focused on using the HiSea services to improve aquaculture operations, lower maintenance costs, and anticipate damaging events to mitigate negative impacts.

What will you gain from the HiSea webinar?

HiSea is developing innovative services for the aquaculture sector to provide more reliable and accurate forecasts and alerts regarding water quality and conditions.  Co-designed with end-users, to answer the real needs of the aquaculture sector, the services will be demonstrated to obtain your feedback and update the final product to fulfill expectations. We invite you to interact with the HiSea Platform and help us shape it to best fit your needs and workflow.

The webinar will focus on:

  • Real time, historical data and forecast of weather and water quality information including currents, water level, waves, oxygen levels, turbidity, of sea, and sea water temperatures to implement effective and efficient aquaculture management.

  • Improvement of procedures with impact on a daily operation such as pumping schedules or oil spill tracking.

  • 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.

Date & Place:

The webinar will take place on Thursday, October 7 at the Aquaculture Europe conference in Madeira, Portugal.
