Weather Monitoring in Aquaculture

How do you monitor weather in aquaculture for improved farm management?

Aquaculture farms are often located in harsh marine environments

Due to our geographical location as an island nation weather conditions in New Zealand can be harsh environments for the accurate monitoring of weather. This is particularly prevalent in coastal marine areas – which are often locations for aquaculture. High winds, rain, corrosive salt air, and the strength of our summer sun can wreak havoc on remote weather stations and monitoring sensors. The aquaculture industry (mussel, oyster and salmon farms) rely heavily on accurate weather reporting of variables such as temperature, wind, rain, and sun to maximise yields and profitability.

Accurate data from continuous monitoring can help reduce environmental impact

The ability to monitor weather conditions accurately in real-time can play a crucial role in decision making across the aquaculture industry. Live data for weather variables such as wind speed and direction, temperature, rainfall, and solar radiation may all be important factors in determining the course of a wide range of events.

Accurate and constant monitoring of these variables can aid in critical decision making which focuses on reducing resource wastage and environmental impact, and maximising efficiencies and profitability. The live weather data is sent to the Adroit platform where it can be viewed from any connected device including mobile. Our ruggedly constructed professional Gill MaxiMet weather stations are made of high-quality, accurate and reliable sensors. These only require low maintenance and are easy to install.
