Robotic fish to control water quality in fish farms
A group of scientists from Madrid, Florence and Sheffield have created a bionic robotic fish to control the water quality. This development should help the aquaculture industry, which provides roughly half of all consumed seafood in the world directly depends on the purity and composition of the water. The robot fish uses sensors to monitor acid-base balance. When it detects too acidic or poisonous region in water it changes its motion, signaling the problem. This makes it possible to detect water changes and to take measures for their elimination will have a positive effect on fish health on fish farms. In addition, the robot not only looks like a fish but also moves like a fish, that is, it will not cause zhivotnyh stress.
