Aquaculture

Shellfish and fish farmers : secure your facilities !

Context

Unpredictable and dramatic for aquaculture facilities, toxic microalgae blooms are more and more frequent due to climate change and water pollution by N and P fertilizers running-off from the land. Who in this industry has not yet been confronted at least once or repetitively to this phenomenon, with terrible impact on the commercial activity?

Conventionnal surveillance methods, daily visual inspection or 3- to 7-day data provided by normalized lab analyses (microscopy, toxin measurements) are not usable to take decisions a step ahead a bloom occurence, neither to predict the next days/weeks situation along the season.

Consequences

Anticipating a contamination remains almost impossible, and, once the sales ban has been pronounced, the time needed for new analyses makes the crisis situation even longer, with several precious days lost.
