Equipment that works, data where you need it, that's aquaMeasure.

aquaMeasure is a family of compact, submersible environmental sensors with underwater and in-air wireless communications. aquaMeasure was designed with a focus on what matters most, your data. By combining underwater communications with cloud-sync technology, aquaMeasure delivers a user experience that is intuitive and unique, enabling mass amounts of data to be gathered from underwater environments and sent seamlessly to the cloud. All aquaMeasure sensors measure temperature and tilt along with a range of different sensor configurations including Dissolved Oxygen (DO), Salinity (SAL), DO/Depth (DOD), Chlorophyll (CHLA), Turbidity, BG Algae (Freshwater & Marine) and CDOM/FDOM. Sensors are easy to install, built for the roughest of open ocean conditions and are field-ready, factory-calibrated.

aquaMeasure DO

The aquaMeasure DO is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures dissolved oxygen (DO), temperature and tilt in real-time.

Why Measure?

DO measurements are crucially important in optimizing feeding and maintaining healthy fish. Ongoing low dissolved oxygen levels on a farm can significantly affect fish behavior and lead to mortality. Conversely, supersaturated water can be highly dangerous for fish, leading to similar behaviors. Not every farm is the same. DO levels can be affected by numerous variables; size of fish, net fouling, water temperature, salinity and atmospheric pressure. Levels continuously vary throughout a day, so it is crucial that aquaculture farmers measure DO in real-time.

aquaMeasure SAL

The aquaMeasure SAL is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures salinity (SAL), temperature and tilt in real-time.

Why Measure?

Salinity is an important measure of water quality as many species of fish survive in different ranges of salinity. In aquaculture, abrupt changes in salinity can cause high levels of stress and can even lead to mortality. Although changes in salinity are uncommon, greater fluctuations are found in areas affected by tidal forces or near a freshwater source. It is recommended that salinity is measured in realtime to capture changeover events and to utilize preventative measures. Salinity can also be used to convert DO saturation measurements into mg/L.

aquaMeasure BGA (Freshwater)

The aquaMeasure BGA is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures BG Algae, temperature and tilt in real-time. The BG Algae (Freshwater) sensor is configured to measure the BG algae more typically found in freshwater environments (phycocyanin).

Why Measure?

Blue-Green Algae (BG Algae) are a bacterium that grows in both fresh and marine water ecosystems. In aquaculture environments, signs of BG Algae are not always visible and blooms can have an almost instantaneously disastrous effect on farm biomass. Negative effects can include low dissolved oxygen and the production of toxins, which can lead to extremely high levels of mortality. In areas known for potential algae blooms, or high levels of BG Algae, realtime monitoring is extremely important.

The aquaMeasure BGA is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures BG Algae, temperature and tilt in real-time. The BG Algae (Marine) sensor is configured to measure the BG algae more typically found in saltwater environments (phycoeryrthin).

Why Measure?

Blue-Green Algae (BG Algae) are a bacterium that grows in both fresh and marine water ecosystems. In aquaculture environments, signs of BG Algae are not always visible and blooms can have an almost instantaneously disastrous effect on farm biomass. Negative effects can include low dissolved oxygen and the production of toxins, which can lead to extremely high levels of mortality.

aquaMeasure TURB

The aquaMeasure Turbidity is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures turbidity, temperature and tilt in real-time.

Why Measure?

Turbidity is most often a result of suspended particles of solid matter in marine environments; if water is turbid it appears ‘cloudy’. Turbidity is an important measure of water quality because increased levels of turbidity raise water temperatures, which can be harmful to biomass and affect fish feeding behavior and welfare. Sudden changes in turbidity can also be an indication that a new pollutant source is under development, or entered the water. Real-time monitoring of turbidity helps ensure that nothing goes unnoticed and can provide greater insights for other parameters.

aquaMeasure CHLA

The aquaMeasure CHLA is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures chlorophyll, temperature and tilt in real-time.

Why Measure?

Measuring chlorophyll in water is important in order to estimate levels of phytoplankton; if a high level of chlorophyll is detected, it is an indication that a high level of phytoplankton is present in the water. In aquaculture, the size of the biomass and possible pollutants entering the water can have a major impact on macronutrients and phytoplankton biomass. In order to gain a clear vision for sustainable use of aquaculture and marine habitats, assessment of water quality depending on phytoplankton is important.

aquaMeasure CDOM/FDOM

The aquaMeasure CDOM/FDOM is a compact, wireless underwater sensor that measures CDOM/FDOM, temperature and tilt in real-time.

Why Measure?

Coloured or chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) is a naturally occurring matter that consumes UV light in water. CDOM in part will fluoresce when it absorbs light of a certain spectrum; this called fluorescent dissolved organic matter or FDOM. CDOM/FDOM sensors are used to measure dissolved organic material (DOM) in fresh and marine water ecosystems. Aquaculture sites close to human influences such as logging, agriculture, effluent discharge and wetland drainage can be subject to varying levels of CDOM/FDOM, making it crucial to measure both parameters continuously and in real-time.
