Every species has its own dietary needs, rhythms, habits and welfare standards. The same is true for the ecological systems they live in. So to understand the optimal feeding regime, we need to factor in hundreds of parameters and analyze this in real time. A near impossible task, even for the most experienced feeder.
In Bluegrove we use a combination of technologies, scientific data, human expertise and smart analysis tounderstand and act upon the needs of the species and its surroundings.

With our platform of complementary solutions, we offer farmers the possibility to augment their capabilities and intuition, ranging from tools and hardware that make daily work more efficient to fully autonomous feeding as a service.
Unlocking the power of data with SonarX
The Bluegrove digital platform also includes SonarX acoustic post processing software. This software has been developed and expanded during the past 20 years in close cooperation with scientists all around the world working with echo sounders. The result is a system that processes and analyses hydro acoustic data in an easy, fast and accurate way.
Suited for Oceans, Lakes, Rivers, Mobile surveys and Fixed locations | Vertical, and Horizontal beaming | Range 2000m | Can do Behavior studies | Biomass estimation | Tracking | Data insight | Classification, Statistics | Maps | Pictures | Cross-filtering | Single echo | Bottom and water current detection | Fish sizing | Oscilloscopes | 3D-Amp and phase diagrams | Ray tracing | Transducer position prediction | Patented methods push the noise levels
SonarX consist of two different systems: Sonar4 – Abundance estimation tool and Sonar5-Pro – Advanced biomass, tracking, macrophyte, target classification, multi frequency analysis, multi beam tool etc.
Software guided analysis (SGA) following the new standard operation procedure for the Great lakes
Biomass analysis including regression equations for output of length and weight results
Tracking and target classification options (traditional and sophisticated CrossFilter based methods)
2D and 3D presentation tools (waste number of options)
Script language for creating new specialized analysis methods
CageEye uses hydroacoustics and smart algorithms to observe fish behavior and to objectively measure the appetite of the fish. This enables farmers to follow the fish’s natural routines and feed according to the fish’s appetite, resulting in more efficient feeding, less feed waste and improved animal welfare. CageEye’s autonomous feeding solution is a break-through in salmon farming.
NorseAqua develops and produces fish farming equipment and cleaner fish equipment. The robust, easy to use and customized products help fish farmers improve their production. NorseAqua is well known for their feeders and feed spreader, their Mid-Norwegian Ring that helps improve the water quality in cages and for their kelp systems, being used to support the usae of cleaner fish to fight sea lice problems.
SEALAB provides leading camera technology solutions to monitor and analyze fish in the aquaculture industry.
