Baseline surveys provide a comprehensive assessment of potential aquaculture sites, environmental conditions, and suitability for fish or shellfish farming. This helps inform your site selection and management decisions for sustainable operations.
Our specialized technicians and scientists can analyze samples from your aquaculture sites to assess the levels of pollutants and nutrients in the water and sediments. This data is used to manage water quality, prevent disease outbreaks, and ensure safety.
RPAS operations provide an efficient and cost-effective method for monitoring and managing aquaculture operations. Drones equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors collect data on fish behavior, and site conditions, allowing for real-time decision-making. SEM's production division can also produce promotional, VR and 360 orientation videos to suit your needs.
Underwater video surveys provide non-invasive monitoring to assess the health and productivity of aquaculture operations. These surveys capture high-resolution video footage of fish behavior, feeding patterns, and habitat suitability to identify potential issues and optimize production.
LiDAR surveys provide a detailed three-dimensional view of the environment, allowing for precise mapping of underwater features and topography. This information can be used to optimize site selection, improve infrastructure design, and monitor changes in the environment over time.
These surveys map the seafloor and detect objects found in the water column or along the seafloor to prevent collisions, increase safety and provide robust data.
SEM provides a comprehensive evaluation of your aquaculture operations to ensure compliance with regulations and sustainability standards. These assessments cover environmental impacts, fish health, and social responsibility, and provide recommendations to improve performance and mitigate risks. Through these assessments we can also track your progress and demonstrate your commitment to responsible practices.
We can assess impacts on seabed habitats and benthic communities. These services include regular monitoring of sediment composition, macro-invertebrate populations, and other indicators of ecosystem health.
SEM has managed several large aquaculture projects in partnership with ASL Environmental Sciences include current profiling for mooring engineering design and depositional modeling for new sites. These services include mooring design, field deployment and retrieval of ADCP equipment, safety management, and report preparation.
