PROJECT IN BRIEF

Farmed fish are exposed to biosecurity risks that compromise their welfare and increase production costs. Risks include pathogens and proliferations of microalgae and jellyfish. Farms will become less accessible as the industry expands into offshore and higher energy environments. New remote monitoring tools are needed, therefore, to support decision making for mitigating biosecurity risks and monitoring fish offshore. This project unites all three Tasmanian salmon companies with researchers from Griffith University and the University of Tasmania to develop computer vision approaches for monitoring jellyfish threats and the body condition of fish in remote and offshore environments.
