Sustainable Fish Farming: Development of an Integrated monitoring & control system to maximise production and reduce waste


Environmental Science

Dr Gera Troisi , Dr K Banitas Applications accepted all year round Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

AQUA-EYE is an autonomous monitoring platform of ambient conditions in fish farms, for remote alerting of sub-optimal conditions in real-time, to minimise waste and maximise production. The technology provides the critical diagnostic function for an online software tool which is already being developed with cloud data storage. The device will provide fish-farmers with real-time information to inform their decision-making when optimising conditions in their fish farms to maximise fish production. This will help minimise waste and loss of fish stocks. The project will involve design, fabrication for the device followed by marine field trials at fish farms located along the Mediterranean Sea Coast. The project is in collaboration with European Research Institutes and Industrial Partners.

Students with a background in engineering should apply with strengths in Arduino programming, sensors and electronics.

Please specify your lab, software and field skills in your CV and list modules taken and their marks. Detail any previous research projects (e.g. dissertations) including the skills used and the mark achieved.
