The Rise of Smart Aquaculture: Transforming the Future of Fish Farming

The Rise of Smart Aquaculture: Transforming the Future of Fish Farming

In 2050, food production requirements will be rise around 60 per cent to feed a world population of 9.3 billion. Climate change and its subsequent impact on surviving food production systems, there is wonderful gravity to meet the rising food security and nutritional mandate. By way of we navigate these complex challenges; we need to reconsideration how we feed our population. There is an unyielding need to reimagine traditional food making systems for a sustainable future. Wide-reaching, a developing alternative solution to this is smart aquaculture an intelligent production method that positions IOT, immense data and artificial intelligence, concluded remote control or robot self-governing control of aquaculture services, apparatus and machinery to comprehensive all production and management processes. Smart aquaculture is an integration of current information technology and the total aquaculture value chain, which involves production, operation, management and facility. Around the farmers are progressively shifting from labour-intensive, to mechanized, and to automated farming performs.

Technology: A Promoter dose for Fisheries 

India is the 2nd biggest aquaculture producer in the world and plays a vital part in underwriting to the Indian GDP. Owed its 7,516 km coastline, the Indian aquaculture area has a share of unexploited likely and the ability to become the world's foremost producer of sustainable seafood. However, the sector is uptight with some challenges.

On behalf of starters, the identical nature of shrimp farming, someplace growth takes place out-of-sight and subaquatic, makes farming activity hard to display. In fact, the three main challenges that an aquaculture farmer faces are: 

1.    Water quality, 
2.    Feeding efficiency 
3.    Quality of fish seed

If the water quality of these ponds is not of the preferred ordinary, the output can be harshly affected that’s way aquaculture need a smart solution to report these gaps in the aquaculture ecosystem is a combined method – a arrangement of human and technological involvement to guarantee that farmers are aware of the best performs dominant in aquaculture. Smart aquaculture technology is the significant improved productivity and their immunity. On behalf of internet of things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) to remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and remote satellite imagery, these novel technologies are actuality used by some developing farmers to fight the prevailing challenges in aquaculture farming systems and enhance the overall fisheries production.
