New autonomous device set to give Shetland aquaculture a boost
Sector: Fisheries & Aquaculture
UHI Shetland has secured £185,000 investment from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to purchase a high-tech piece of equipment known as an Imaging FlowCytobot (IFCB). The IFCB can scan water samples for phytoplankton (microalgae) using flow cytometry, lasers and cameras. It then beams this data to the cloud for specialist analysis allowing phytoplankton detection and monitoring.
