Sentinel V Plays a Role in Improving the Quality of Marine Food

The field of aquaculture is becoming increasingly important as the global demand for marine food rises. Fish farming is conducted primarily in relatively sheltered, still waters; however, as the industry grows, farms are being forced to expand into locations that are exposed to currents and waves. This impacts cage design and harms the welfare of the fish, and thus impacts the quality of marine food. In order to ensure a more sustainable production of quality marine food in exposed current and wave-heavy waters, the aquaculture community needs more knowledge about the interaction between the physical environment, current cage design, and caged fish behavior. The use of the five-beam Sentinel V Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) will help to correlate video recordings of fish behavior with exact offshore current and wave activity impacting the cages.
