Our project, Aquaculture Insights, aims to build an Open Data Platform integrated with an end-to-end, sensor-to-cloud IoT solution to:
Digital transformation of the aquaculture industry aims to give salmon farmers insight and control of their data, enabling analytics and AI to be applied to a wide range of variables.
We aim to optimise operations: maximising the healthy growth of fish, while minimising costs. We are confident that using our system will result in higher food safety and traceability via better environmental stewardship, providing an economical and ecologically sound healthy protein source for global consumers.
This project has received funding from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). This body of the European Union receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
Philips Aquaculture lighting/Signify addresses the specific needs of hatchery and grow-out sites either on land or off shore and have been developed in close collaboration with leading universities and institutes. Our lights incorporate the most advanced LED chipsets and controls with the finest marine grade materials ensuring durability under the toughest conditions.Explore the next generation of submersible aquaculture lighting. Choosing for the best high-powered aquaculture LED lights can make a huge difference to your business. Our range of lights have shown to achieve 0% maturation losses, support the growth with double digits and lower the food conversion ratio. In sea cages our lights have proven to significantly lower the exposure to sea lice, thanks to our unique light distribution, reducing sea lice treatment up to 50%.

OptoScale is a leading company in the smart camera industry, and has customers for its solution in many of the main salmon-producing countries. Together with fish farmers Optoscale have developed its own easy to use software for accessing, viewing, and exporting relevant data about your fish, all through your browser. Achieve greater insights in growth per day across several fish cages, locations, or even regions to boost your overall productivity. Their software contains the following modules:
- Overview of your farm and BioScopes
- Weight development
- Comparative analyses – how is the fish cage 1 growing compared to cage 2?
- Weight distribution
- Export functionality
The data they generate is only useful once it has been interpreted by users on the fish farm. This has been taken into careful consideration when they built the software.
Why we are in the project:
This project has the same ambition as our vision for OptoScale – to be able to provide fish farmers with high quality and relevant information, enabling better decision making. Working together with the reputable partners in the project is very rewarding to us, and we are looking forward to achieving great things together, across both countries and continents.
