Stig Martin Fiskå, Global Head of Cognizant Ocean, explains how end-to-end smart platforms could help revolutionise the aquaculture value chain

Improving the sustainability, efficiency, productivity and growth of players in the blue food space, particularly in the aquaculture sector, through the application of digital technologies such as AI and data analytics is at the heart of Cognizant Ocean, explained the new business group’s global head, Stig Martin Fiskå.

Focused on the blue economy and with an international team sitting across Europe and North America, it has four central areas of interest: blue carbon – to decarbonise the oceans and reduce greenhouse gas emissions; blue energy and the harnessing of renewable ocean power; blue transport – with the aim to develop efficient and sustainable transport solutions for maritime and coastal activities; and blue food – promoting sustainable and responsible practices in aquaculture and marine food production.
