Data driven insight into fish behaviour for aquaculture
Paulito Palmes, PhD, Fearghal O'Donncha

Aquaculture, or the farmed production of fish and shellfish, has grown rapidly, from supplying just 7% of fish for human consumption in 1974 to more than half in 2016. Sustaining this rapid expansion requires data-driven management of the production process and environmental impacts. This talk presents a machine-learning-based exploration of environmental and fish behaviour datasets collected at three salmon farms in Norway, Scotland, and Canada using AutoML tools in Julia.
