As wild fishery populations stagnate, the aquaculture industry has emerged as an important means of providing protein to an ever expanding population. Good water quality is important for ensuring the effective production of healthy fish fit for human consumption, whilst the environmental impacts of the production process itself also needs to be carefully monitored.

Chelsea Technologies’ range of in situ sensors are idea for this application and are being used for algal monitoring and water quality assessment at inland, coastal and offshore aquaculture sites.

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