Fish farmers can test water quality in real time thanks to new EU-funded app

Fish farming has become an important source of high-quality protein. But aquaculture farmers often suffer high losses.

Fish farming is a sustainable means of meeting the demand for seafood. Many factors can affect the health of farmed fish, including environmental conditions, the impact of production on the local area, and harmful algal blooms.

Fish farmers often lack the necessary key environmental information about local conditions to help them become more efficient and sustainable. By developing a mobile app and web portal, the EU-funded project AQUA-USERS is supporting the growth of efficient, sustainable aquaculture production. It is providing farmers with information on the best sites to farm alongside useful on-site measurement data.
