Aquafarmers can now discover useful knowledge from their data. Find out about aquasmart as presented in WCAF-2016 which took place in Qingdao, China by Integration Information Systems’s CEO Kostas Seferis.
i2s is excited to be present at the 5th Annual World Congress of Aquaculture and Fisheries 2016, WCAF-2016. i2s, among other activities, is a key member of the European project aquasmart, a team that aims at making technologies.
Although cleaner fish are proving an effective and environmentally friendly way of removing sea lice on salmon farms, they can carry pathogens that can cause disease in both the cleaner fish and salmon. Speaking at Aquaculture Europe, 20-23 September, Edinburgh, Scotland, researchers discuss best practice to reduce disease transmission.
The AquaSmart project was represented by Kostas Seferis, Gary Mcmanus and Tom Flynn from i2s, TSSG and TFC Research and Innovation Limited respectively, at the Aquaculture Europe 2016, an important 3 day conference event which was held at Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). At the conference, the aquaSmart tool, which will soon be launched onto the market, was introduced.
Aquaculture is facing a new era of expansion in Europe and has an important role to play in food security as well as its economic growth. Nevertheless, we are obliged to have in mind the impacts on the environment. Future Brief from Science for Environment Policy, in a few words, is presentented, as an overview of research into aquaculture’s impacts.
In the context of MECAA16 conference, Aquamanager team had the change to present how smart and open data analytics can assist aquaculture companies to transform their every day production data, into knowledge and use this very knowledge to dramatically improve their overall performance.
AquaManager is a key member of the European project “aquasmart” that aims at compiling technologies like big data, data mining and the cloud, making them accessible by all the fish farming community, so as to support smarter decisions, better production and efficient management.

Our CEO, Kostas Seferis, will demonstrate aquaManager and the many sustainable benefits aquaManager is presently delivering to a sizeable number of aquaculture production companies worldwide.
A guest lecture on Visualisation Techniques in Data Mining for real-world applications is given by Gerasimos Antzoulatos, i2s Data Analyst, at the Department of Information and Communication Systems, at University Mittuniversitetet – Mid Sweden University… how the data analysts and also end-users in Aquaculture sector could visually investigate data, so as to gain insights and useful knowledge for further analysis. The lecture focused on real-world applications and the findings of AQUASMART European project are exhibited. Generally, visualization techniques classified into two broad classes, namely, Data visualization tools and techniques and Visual data mining tools and techniques….
This is a summary of some of the findings from the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s (GAA) global production survey for selected finfish and mussel species. A presentation of the data collected and analyzed, co-authored by Ragnar Nystoyl, Ragnar Tveteras and Darryl Jory, was presented at the recent GOAL 2015 conference in Vancouver, Canada. The estimates are based on a global survey of many information sources undertaken by GAA, which is coordinated by Darryl Jory, and estimates from Kontali.
