The Benefits of High-Resolution Water quality Information for Port and Aquaculture sector

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

9:30 – 13:00 CET

Benefit of High-Resolution Water Quality Data Services

The EU-funded HiSea Project invites you to participate in a virtual demonstration workshop focused on using the HiSea services to improve port and 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 port and 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 on Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 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 and port 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.
