Solutions: How we understand the population

How to understand our species?

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 to understand and act upon the needs of the species and its surroundings.

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.

Application overview

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

Key features

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)

  • Macrophyte analysis

  • Bottom classification

  • 2D and 3D presentation tools (waste number of options)

  • Script language for creating new specialized analysis methods

  • Ray tracing module

  • Frequency response tools for FM Mode

  • And much more…

CageEye Logo

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.
