Despite being one of the most talked about new technologies for the aquaculture sector, the underwater netpen biomass camera sector is still very young and its development during the coming years will depend on product innovation, market acceptance and investors willingness to continue to back new technologies.

There is certainly a growing interest from salmon farmers in installaing underwater cameras in their netpens, and the benefits are manifold, but the sector has still plenty to learn.

Underwater cameras could help develop the industry considerably, but we are just at the beginning of this new technology and the uptake of these cameras is still low, Ace Aquatec CTO Keith Davidson told IntraFish.
