The location dictates the criteria of the concept and construction. Therefore, a good location is vital to the success of an offshore fish farm project.
The location should take into consideration weather, other activities, logistics, ship traffic, water depths and seafloor geology.
GM Aqua Analytics have taken all these into considerations and made a model of where to locate different types of offshore fish farm installations. The model use accessible GIS data together with own weather models to analyse different locations. As an example illustration below show a map of AIS traffic data together with areas for fishery. From this you can avoid collisions risks and conflict with fishery when selecting location.
