Algae detection system aims to help aquaculture bloom

Press/Media: Research


A Scottish consortium is developing an early-warning detection system for potentially dangerous plankton and algae, which could help the aquaculture industry tackle one of the biggest challenges to fish health.

The group – comprising of marine technology provider OTAQ, the Iain Fraser Cytometry Centre (IFCC) at the University of Aberdeen, the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), and CENSIS (the Innovation Centre for sensor and imaging systems and Internet of Things technologies) – is creating a low-cost sensor system that can automatically sample, identify, and count specific microscopic organisms using imaging analysis.
