Smart fish farm technology unveiled
SOUTH Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries has shown off some of the latest technologies used in the management of fish farms.
A demonstration of a new system was held at a mullet fish farm in the southern county of Hadong in the South Gyeongsang Province - a system which adopts new information and communications technologies, as well as advanced equipment such as small unmanned submersible vehicles and underwater cameras.
These will allow workers to manage their fish farms from afar with their smartphone, according to the ministry.
‘Smart fish farms will help boost the efficiency of farming operations, create more jobs and develop eco-friendly ways of doing this business,’ said maritime minister Kim Youngchoon.
