The incredible potential of the IoT for New Zealand’s aquaculture sector is highlighted in this recent One News item set in the Marlborough Sounds – with the use of sensor-enabled buoys providing constant feedback to mussel farmers. Real-time wireless monitoring of water parameters such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity and salinity provide insights to provide immediate efficiency improvements and assist in long term planning. With most aquaculture being done in the public spaces, the pressure on farmers to understand the impact they’re having on these waterways is higher than ever. The industry is looking to tech businesses like Adroit for solutions.
