According to CSIRO engineer James Sharp, h technology, called Fishbit, will allow fish biometrics to be measured in different environments, whether wildlife or aquaculture environments.
"You can get an idea of whether a fish is experiencing any environmental stress by measuring its oxygen levels, heart rate, so you can see if other predators may be nearby or when the fish are transported after being caught and moved in cages," he said. Sharp.
“You can still see the effects of global warming, rising ocean temperatures and pollution. Fish allow people to measure and respond to these problems. "
CSIRO researchers are developing a sound wave technology that will allow them to receive sound waves. data collected by Fishbit in real time. Sharp pointed out that existing wireless technologies are not sufficiently developed to be used underwater.
“What we use is sound wave technology because it spreads quite well through seawater. It is a difficult environment for reliable communication because there are constant interference, such as the propellers of a boat and other common sources of noise in the marine environment. ”
“You can have a dive watch that measures your heart rate while under the water, which will send information those on board so other passengers know you're okay. Or if your heart rate goes up it may indicate that you are in a panic state and could also have an alarm button so you can alert if something goes wrong. "
