Dynaspace – Advancing Aquaculture Transparency

Space technology meets aquaculture.

Dynaspace advances the transparency of aquaculture by utilizing satellite imagery to provide a cloud based platform with the most comprehensive map of aquaculture operations. This empowers farmers to gain access to the resources they need to ensure environmental and sustainable production.

Aquaculture is the food source and livelihood for billions of people, and is rapidly growing.

Aquaculture is key to solving the human kind’s food problem as our population reaches byond 9 billions by 2050. Aquaculture production reached another all-time record high of 115 million tonnes of farmed seafood produced, valued at EUR 221 billion in 2018 (FAO).

The aquaculture industry is facing huge challenges with its own scale, sustainability and primitive production methods.

There are millions of square kilometres of ocean and land surface with aquaculture operations, making it impossible to track key production data and environmental impact, ensuring that millions of farmers gain access to the resources they need to empower environmentally and sustainable production.

By using space technology we are solving global data gathering challenges, advancing aquaculture transparency.

We believe that space technology can leapfrog the aquaculture industry with unique reliable insights and contribute to environmental and sustainable production for generations to come.

Real-time insights with Dynaspace.

By using computer vision, proprietary machine learning algorithms, and Dynaspace’s satellite image processing capabilities, Dynaspace is able to detect aquaculture operations and monitor their activity in real-time, year-round.
