The new system comes with a HD camera and can be combined with the new and intuitive SeaSight Control software to provide salmon farmers with greater clarity and control, enhancing the task of monitoring feeding and fish activity inside pens, said the company in a press release today.

It can also be integrated with the company’s SeaFeed pellet detection package which uses video imagery from the SeaSight HD camera and sophisticated detection algorithms to intelligently pinpoint feed pellets. This allows for automatic control of feeding, or, if preferred, detection in manual mode as a visual aid with user defined “threshold” triggers within SeaSight Control.

Also introduced as part of the range is a new SeaSight double winch which allows operators to effortlessly move the SeaSight HD Camera horizontally and vertically. This offers increased control over its positioning throughout the pen, which is particularly of benefit in high energy conditions.

Added to the range is the new SeaSight fixed look up/down hd camera, a perfect option for low cost installations. The camera allows the operator to view feeding activity from a ‘look-up’ fixed position or alternatively can be positioned pointing down to monitor morts at the bottom of the pen.

Commenting on the launch, Gael Force Aquaculture sales manager Craig Graham said: “We have invested a significant amount of time and effort bringing together all the elements of the new SeaSight range. It’s fantastic to see our new products and software working in tandem, empowering our customers to feed and care for their fish even more sustainably.”

Earlier this month Gael Force revealed their 5-year growth strategy, placing Innovation high on the list of its strategic objectives. Craig Graham said: “Our product development team has been working hard on a roadmap of new products, and it’s really their hard work that has allowed us to overhaul the range to such an extent. However, we are not done there as there is lots more to come in the future, and I’m looking forward to us being able to reveal those to our customers in due course.”
