Integrating IoT solutions for sustainable aquaculture


Seaweed (or kelp) cultivation is seen as having a high potential to contribute to solving the problem of ocean pollution. However, seaweed farmers are struggling with questions such as:

What are the optimal circumstances under which kelp grows, and what is the impact on the surrounding ecosystem?

We are building an algorithm based on satellite data & smart buoy integrations that give actionable insights for kelp farmers to increase crop production.

Our goal is that in the coming years all ocean farms become connected with smart solutions.
