AQUAEXCEL Training Course on Efficient Utilisation of New Monitoring and Control Systems in Fish Experiments

AQUAEXCEL Training Course on Efficient Utilisation of New Monitoring and Control Systems in Fish Experiments | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The main focus of this course will be on the use of advanced monitoring and communication tools in aquaculture fish experiments. Experimental methods in first feeding experiments will be introduced, with emphasis on the possibilities offered by instrumentation and control systems. Participants will learn to handle and efficiently use the available cameras, sensors and control systems at the CodTech automated first feeding rig in different types of experiments. Opportunities for applying monitoring and control tools in different production systems will be evaluated. Another objective of the course will be demonstrating how to apply remote access tools in sea-based aquaculture at the Aquaculture Engineering (ACE) exposed farming site. Course participants will visit corner stone aquaculture companies in the coastal region of Frøya, and will be given the opportunity to interact with Norwegian industry representatives.

 

Main parts of the course:

First feeding and on-growing aquacultureE-Infrastructure opportunitiesControl SystemsRemote Monitoring


The course is organised by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Stiftelsen for industriell og teknisk forskning (SINTEF), SeaLab, Trondheim, Norway.

 

Target audience is:

Master’s students in aquaculture, automation and process control, Information and Communications Technology (ICT)Facility operators and researchers in aquaculture research infrastructuresAquaculture staff with development and operation responsibility (producers, suppliers)

 

Course tutors are:

Elin Kjørsvik (Professor at NTNU, Dept of Biology)Jan Ove Evjemo (Senior researcher at NTNU, Dept of Biology)Jo Arve Alfredsen (Associate Professor at NTNU, Dept of Engineering Cybernetics)Morten Alver (Adjunct Associate Professor at NTNU, Dept of Engineering Cybernetics)Gunnar Senneset (Senior researcher at SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture)Ep Eding (Senior researcher/lecturer at Wageningen University)

Full day excursion to an exposed sea-cage salmon farming site and to the aquaculture region of Frøya.


The course commences at 8:30am Monday 19 May 2014 and concludes at 3:00pm Thursday 22 May 2014: Four days including excursion. There is no fee, but participants will need to pay their own travel and accommodation costs.

 


John Bostock's insight:

Previous AQUAEXCEL training courses have been very popular so with numbers limited you are advised to apply early if interested.

Nofima - Educating seafood industry about R & D management

Nofima - Educating seafood industry about R & D management | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Nofima is collaborating with the University of Tromsø to run a course on management of R & D.

 

On one hand, the course aims to get the seafood companies to work more strategically with research, development and innovation. On the other hand, it aims to help develop closer contact and interaction between research, industry and funding agencies.

 

The target group is small and medium-sized seafood companies. The course is particularly aimed at managers, mid-level managers and others who have or are intended to have responsibility for research, development and innovation.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks to be a great initiative, I hope companies take advantage.
