Early warning for blooms in aquaculture areas

The Saldahna Bay area in South African intensively used for aquaculture, however, the area also suffers from Harmful blooms (HABs), destroying the harvest.

In a project together with AtlanticRoyal we are setting up an Early warning system, to allow shellfish farmers to harvest before a toxic bloom, by combining Earth Observation based maps, automated high frequent in situ optical measurements and held-held measurements for validation.
