  3. The purpose of the 3 year AQUAlity project: Develop an AQUAlity system: 1. To develop an ammonia and nitrite measurement device to be used in the biofilters in RAS • Online measurements and more affordable than present methods 2. To make a multisensor prototype (collect all the different parameters in one system at a fish farm) 3. To develop a farm control system with a database to store data from the multisensor 4. To develop a web based knowledge advice system • Allows a fish farmer to compare farm parameters to others, and best in class. • To get expert advice

  5. Results of the AQUAlity project: 1. An ammonia and nitrite measurement demonstrator device has been developed in the project Technical details are kept within the consortium. The device can measure levels of ammonia and nitrite as well. The partner OxyGuard has the opportunity to bring this demonstrator to the market. Estimated 2 years development from a real marketable device. The principle behind the device has been proven in practise. Expected to be able to fit in a shoe box.

  6. Results of the AQUAlity project: 2. The multisensor system have been completed (collects the parameters in one system at a fish farm) The collection utilises exiting OxyGuard Pacific equipment. Hardware and software development have enabled the collection of the new ammonia and nitrite parameters by the unit as well.

  7. Results of the AQUAlity project: The AQUAlity multisensor system currently collects: Water flow Biofilter: Dissolved oxygen – DO and % saturation, CO 2 and %vol. Temperature, pH, Salinity, Total Gas Pressure (TGP) and %resolution. Total ammonia nitrogen (TAN), NH 3 , NO 2 , NH 4 Tank: DO and % saturation, Temperature Fish farm: Air Temperature, Air Pressure, Air Humidity, Air flow rate The AQUAlity system can be configured to support any sensor compatible with the Pacific unit

  8. Results of the AQUAlity project: 3. The farm control system with a database has been developed

  9. Results of the AQUAlity project: The farm control systems monitors each fish batch according to feed, growth and mortality All parameters are monitored in one screen and each parameter can be monitored in a graph as well All data is collected in a database

  10. Results of the QUAlity project: 4. A web based knowledge advice system has been developed A fish farmer can compare farm parameters to others, and best in class Expert advice is available

  11. An example:

  12. Looking for a partner that are willing to host and develop the web based knowledge advice system further when the AQUAlity project ends ”Online expert help” needs supervision from experts and that must be maintained

  13. Future: The ammonia/nitrite sensor can be a possible product for farmers members within two years (if OxyGuard decides). Cheaper/smaller than present systems The farm control system with the database can later be available in a demonstration version The users can utilise the web based knowledge advice system as well. You get access from the farm control software directly The future ownership/development of the control software will be decided in the project group Please visit for project news
