Aquaculture is one of the most prominent food industry sectors in Europe and globally. A steady growth is expected for many years to come, as by 2050 most of the food for the then 9.7 Bln humans will come from underwater farms.
The sector, however, still suffers from high production costs which hinder its expansion. Many daily operations and monitoring activities are performed manually or with costly in-situ interventions.
SEASTAR will address the lack of full digitalization in the sector, by exploiting innovative Internet of Underwater Things Technologies and integrating them with last-generation miniaturized wearable sensors to be placed on each fish. The resulting system will be a completely innovative underwater infrastructure that, for the first time, will allow fish farmers to monitor the health of each fish remotely, in real time, and to gather relevant data for accurate risk assessment and forecasting.
