Danes take tech­nol­ogy to next level

Fish Farmer - - All The Latest Industry News From Europe -

DAN­ISH aqua­cul­ture busi­nesses are col­lab­o­rat­ing in an ini­tia­tive to im­prove the use of new tech­nol­ogy in the in­dus­try.

A project un­der the um­brella of the Dan­ish Green Devel­op­ment and Demon­stra­tion Pro­gramme (GUDP) aims to de­velop an ad­vanced tool that can gather and process data from stake­hold­ers through­out the sec­tor, in­clud­ing sup­pli­ers and fish farm­ers, in a shared, cloud based data­base.

The project is led by OxyGuard In­ter­na­tional and builds on con- tri­b­u­tions from many of the most in­no­va­tive com­pa­nies in Dan­ish aqua­cul­ture, such as BioMar, Dan­ish Salmon, AquaPri, Danaqua, Aller Aqua, Kongeåens Dam­brug, DTU-Aqua, Uni­ver­sity of Copen­hagen.

For data pro­cess­ing, the soft­ware will build on tech­nolo­gies such as big data, in­ter­net of things and ma­chine learn­ing.

This will lead to en­hanced hus­bandry in the farms and op­ti­mised us­age of feed and oxy­gen, and will help re­duce the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of aqua­cul­ture.

Paw Petersen, manag­ing di­rec­tor of Oxyguard In­ter­na­tional, said: ‘The GUDP project aims at com­bin­ing IT and aqua­cul­ture to de­velop smart, easy-to-de­ploy, user friendly tools that can lead to a new era of con­nected, re­spon­si­ble and ef­fi­cient, and thus, sus­tain­able aqua­cul­ture.’

Ole Chris­tensen, vice pres­i­dent of BioMar’s Europe, Mid­dle East and Africa di­vi­sion, said: ‘For BioMar, the aim is to help our cus­tomers to be­come more ef­fi­cient and more sus­tain­able in an eco­nom­i­cally vi­able way.’
