Aquaculture / Fisheries

A resume of aquaculture projects

LAGOSTA – The objective: sustainable aquaculture production of lobsters. By valorizing experimental research, I provided scientific expertise and development advice (method, means). My intervention also contributed to securing financing for the development of a production site and also to win the Partner Award (second place) in the Monegasque Competition 2016 of Business Creation (MonteCarlo. Monaco).


SIDI -(Système Informatique de Données Ichtyologiques)

Ministère de Recherche et Technologie, France, IRD, France, Centre de Recherches Océanographiques de Dakar-Thiaroye (CRODT), l’Institut Sénégalais de Recherches Agricoles (ISRA) – – Measuring fish in laboratories, experimental fishing, aquaculture and professional fishing environments is a complicate but yet essential for stock management.  I led the development of a series of automated tools such as electronic calipers, balances and machine vision permitted stock assessment and management with improved understanding of aquatic resources.


Aquaculture Information Management



IRD, Montpellier, France THUNNUS – French and Spanish researchers were concerned about tuna fishing activities in the Indian and Pacific Oceans and the dangerous conflicts between fishermen.  A European research project was financed to address these concerns.  I designed the data management tools and implemented require solutions which satisfied the researchers in Spain and France and administrators in Brussels.


IFRMER  – SAP –Aquaculture Production can be simulated .By managing a group of scientists we creating simple Excel simulations which was downloaded and used around the world in order help teach and manages aquaculture production.  We compiled 2-dimensional tables, biological models, financial, investments, fixed costs, variable costs, salaries and user entered data in order to predict business and environmental results.  (IFRMER, Montpellier, France).

Simulation & Real Data 

Thalassa, Foods of Greece, SA, Greece  – had me review their Aquaculture Information Management tools and redesign a tool with data management and simulation for their aquaculture installations in Greece.


The Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris, France –  MUSIC (MUSeum Ichthyology) –The MNHN needed a solution which would management the museum’s fish collection, aid in measuring , classifying and provide access to collections to researchers around the world.  The simple yet flexible tools I developed were used throughout the entire museum and around the world.


PIR is a system for storing and extracting fishing data for presentation and statistical analysis.


University of Crete, Greece, Université des Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc (France) –  BIO GESTION – French, Italian and Greek university students learned aquaculture using software the European Community’s “COMET” program commissioned me to develop in collaboration with French students.



Université des Sciences et Techniques du Languedoc, Montpellier, France –– Estimating the number of fish larvae using machine vision for aquaculture production was a challenging technological problem which I was able to overcome by employing my imagination and innovative solution.  The results were published by Marcel Dekker, Inc  in  Fish Quality Control by Computer Vision.
