RS Aqua provide real time current data to salmon farms

RS Aqua has supplied the first real-time current profiler into Scotland for use with Innovasea’s real-time Aquaculture Intelligence system. The profiler is a Nortek Aquadopp Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). Nortek ADCPs are world leading, but are generally deployed independently and record data internally. Innovasea’s system streams data to the salmon farm manager’s phone or PC, displaying current speed and direction in real time at multiple depths. It also shows a projection of how feed pellets will be affected as they fall through the water column, bringing a new level of efficiency to feeding practices.
