3D visualization arrives to the aquaculture sector

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has developed a pair of 3d-goggles that allows the user to take an insight into a fish farm. The device is completed with a video game controller.

From swimming with the fish to controlling the feeding machine, this new gadget offers a complete tour in a fish farm with the possibility of recreating a breeding cycle of 14-22 months in 45 minutes. The experience is set to complement the visit of an actual fish farm by showing tasks and places that usually remain hidden.  

Creators expect to develop this project into a complete virtual breeding simulation program. “We’re working on establishing a center around the simulator on Frøya, and have ambitions to develop Norway’s first aquaculture simulator for breeding,” said Monicha Seternes, head of environment and development for Måsøval fish farming industries, which worked with the NTNU in this project.
