Pollution, climate change and natural and human-induced disasters are affecting the aquaculture market worldwide. Episodes of rapid and uncontrolled jellyfish blooms harmful for the fish stocks and the human are increasing year over year, affecting the loss of profit of marine aquaculture.
To solve these problems, ColomboSky developed JellyX, a monitoring tool for the identification of jellyfish swarms, and the prediction of their movements based on knowledge of oceanographic patterns. Aquaculture companies, actively seeking for effective solutions to that problems, will use JellyX to predict and monitor this issue in advance in order to have time to activate loss minimization plans to safeguard the profit of their farming sites.

Usefulness of Copernicus Marine Service information
JellyX service by ColomboSky could not be developed without the use of Copernicus Marine Service datasets. The most important features for the generation of our reliable maps of risk are:
- Working with scientifically validated dataset
- Fast download and ingestion of data
- Reliable source of data for preprocessing and machine learning methods
- Complete time series and forecast
- Large data coverage
Integration of Copernicus Marine Service information
JellyX is a completely new product bringing tangible benefits to new user communities thanks to the combination of different data sources and techniques.
Combining the use of
- Copernicus Marine Service products
- Copernicus Sentinel 3 satellite
- In-situ observations and ancillary data sources
- and automatic classification algorithms
The Copernicus Marine Service products used to build JellyX product are, for the moment, focused on the Mediterranean Sea and concern satellite datasets and biogeochemical models that can be applied in new geographical areas of application.
Supervised machine learning techniques are used to estimate the abundance of jellyfish and classify the risk of swarm as low, medium and high risk:
