Krucial (formerly R3 IoT) successfully completed a feasibility study to research stakeholder needs across the seafood supply chain, ahead of a project focusing on the aquaculture sector.
This project will unlock the true potential of the satellite connected fish farm by creating the tools necessary to turn large quantities of raw data into valuable and actionable information.
The Krucial platform will provide the means to securely store, view, process, interpret and export the data collected from all connected fish farms, no matter their location.
The feasibility study itself looked to validate the commercial and technical feasibility of a proposed platform development.
The digitisation of fish farms is generating vast amounts of environmental and operational data for farmers and others. The proposed platform will turn these large amounts of farm data into valuable insights through a wide range of processing and visualisation techniques.
The result will provide stakeholders across the aquaculture industry the tools and insight to tackle issues from environmental disasters to operational challenges.

Krucial are thankful to the awarding body and to Northern Light Consultancy and CENSIS for their support on this project.
A special thanks must go to the broad range of interviewed stakeholders whose engagement and willingness to share valuable insight is hugely appreciated.
