Seaport Systems was created to democratize ocean data and use it to enable growth for small-scale aquaculture. Since the adventure began, we've discovered numerous applications for the same oceanographic data that we didn't originally consider. As we grow, we're excited to build out our data monitoring solutions to maximize our impact across the board!


Our origin story: oyster farming and seaweed farming. The aquaculture industry stands to gain tremendously from real-time water quality measurements:

  • Prediction of harmful algal blooms can help farmers prepare ahead of a bloom and mitigate impact to crop and cash flow;
  • Localized data following a significant rainfall or HAB event can help open area to harvest quicker;
  • Modeled growth rates can also help farmers predict yields and adjust sales appropriately.


We quickly learned innovative tools weren't enough. In order to truly enable scale and maximize impact, we also had to back equally innovative research pushing industry forward. The research applications for our monitoring buoys are endless, but we've prioritized a few to start:

  • Aquaculture,
  • Commercial fishing,
  • Oceanography,
  • Climate change,
  • Coastal erosion.

Offshore Energy

As we look beyond the horizon for power generation, we need to build safely and we need to understand the impact offshore infrastructure has on our oceans. Oceanographic data is critical for success. Our monitoring buoys can ensure success of offshore energy and infrastructure projects by helping with:

  • feasibility studies and site surveys;
  • deployment monitoring;
  • environemntal impact studies.
