Aquaculture Water Quality Monitoring

Aquaculture - Sensors for use in Aquaculture / fish farming

As wild fishery populations stagnate, the aquaculture industry has emerged as an important means of providing protein to an ever expanding population, over the last few decades. Aquaculture relates to the farming of a variety of aquatic species in marine, brackish and freshwater environments. Commercial species range from finfish to shellfish to algae and are produced via a number of different production methods. One of the key issues regarding the sustainability of aquaculture, is the issue of water quality.

The importance of water quality monitoring in aquaculture is two-fold. Good water quality is important for ensuring the effective production of healthy fish that are fit for human consumption, whilst the environmental impacts of the production process itself need to be carefully monitored, too.

Real-time monitoring of water quality parameters such as algal biomass, cyanobacteria and pollution is becoming increasingly favoured over traditional methods of sampling and laboratory analysis due to the high cost and labour required.
