Free Webinar: Application of Sensors in Precision Aquaculture

Swansea University in collaboration with the Waterford Institute of Technology is delighted to announce the line-up of speakers for an exciting webinar entitled Application of Sensors in Precision Aquaculture. The webinar will take place on the 25th of May 2021 and is free to all attendees.

Ten speakers will present a range of cutting-edge sensors being developed in Wales and Ireland to support the aquaculture industry. The webinar will feature talks from entrepreneurs, academics, and government agencies committed to supporting aquaculture companies in decision-making to help make ecological aquaculture an achievable target.

The webinar promises to be an unmissable opportunity for professionals working in the aquaculture of fish, shellfish and seaweeds, but also across this dynamic sector.

We encourage everyone interested in aquaculture – farmers, researchers, consultants, suppliers, and environment interest groups to attend this exciting webinar”, said Dr Sara Barrento, Swansea University, speaker and organizer of the webinar.

This is the first joint webinar in a series of webinars organized and supported by the European projects: Access2Sea and STREAM.
