The Future of the SAFI Project

As the final phase of SAFI comes to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to showcase the accomplishments of the project to date - to show our community where we have come from, where we are today, and the future direction of the SAFI service.

The initiative has forged links between Earth Observation scientists, biologists and consultants. This has happened within a community of aquaculture and fisheries operators and decision makers, allowing us to establish a chain of expertise to communicate the potential for Earth Observation capabilities to serve the fisheries and aquaculture sectors.

Built to support industry stakeholders with management and decision making processes, SAFI owes its success to the involvement of our Userboard - the specialist stakeholders who enabled us to identify and achieve the features required of the service we now offer.

This newsletter is dedicated to everyone who lent their support and contributions to SAFI, we would like to thank all the customers, users, and industry leaders who have worked with us on this very exciting and rewarding project which forms one of the first steps in harnessing the Copernicus programme in support of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture development.

Enjoy your reading!
