Seaweed Aquaculture Level Measurement
At this aqua culture environment in the Southeast, seaweed is being cultivated for use as nori paper in sushi and seaweed powder for dietary supplements. An EchoPod DL24 measures a large saltwater tank, growing the seaweed to guarantee that water level is covering the seaweed. As water evaporates from the open tank, the DL24 turns on a pump and opens a valve to allow more mixed salt water to be brought in for supply replenishment. Volumetric blending of salt water is crucial to maintaining a balanced environment for sustained seaweed growth.
