LA2. Sustainable, smart and accurate aquaculture

The national ThinkInAzul combines aspects of basic and applied science with a focus on research and development in biology and technology. It uses genomic tools and alarm systems to prevent biological and natural risks, as well as automation and digitization of aquaculture infrastructures and analysis of massive data using artificial intelligence. The objective is to increase the efficiency and adaptive capacity of aquaculture without damaging the ecosystem and guaranteeing the traceability, quality and food safety of seafood products. It is considered an innovative program due to its multidisciplinary approach that requires collaboration between public research groups, private companies and the aquaculture industry. It also mentions the participation of other actions interested in the application and development of products in the aquatic environment. In addition, it opens opportunities for companies in different fields, and highlights the importance of the digital transition through alert systems and monitoring of the marine environment (IoT) and organisms in culture (IoA) at group and individual level.
