Abstract: Continuing advances in information and communications technologies (ICT) are providing increasing computing power in smaller units and at lower cost. Of particular significance is the rise of the Internet and the increasingly ubiquitous access it is providing to information and global communication. This chapter explores how ICT is being applied in aquaculture to help producers reduce costs whilst improving quality and customer service, and to meet higher standards on environmental and social responsibility. Key topics include monitoring and control, management information systems and product traceability. The role of ICT in supporting sector innovation is also explored.
