The brief

The Sustainability Dashboard is inspired by a desire to be transparent and to help people better understand how Huon Aquaculture manage the welfare of fish and the environmental impact of farming.

Huon Aquaculture want to help people better understand the true nature of what a responsible, ethical and sustainable aquaculture company looks like.

Following the successful completion of the original Sustainability Dashboard in 2014, Ionata Digital worked with Huon Aquaculture to completely redevelop the dashboard. The new dashboard pulls live data directly out of the business system Huon Aquaculture use to monitor environmental impact and fish health.

The solution

As with the Huon Aqua website project we followed some key principals around simplicity and cross device compatibility.

What resulted from our strategy and development is believed to be an industry first for aquaculture and indeed large scale farming in general. We created an dynamic dashboard providing animated charts, video and custom content for Huon Aquaculture’s key performance metrics.

The project has enabled the abolishment of cumbersome and often dated annual reporting around these sometimes sensitive  facets of farming and has allowed Huon to focus on growth and value adding as opposed to responding retroactively.

The Sustainability Dashboard project was a great opportunity work closely with Huon Aquaculture’s internal Information Technology team undertaking complex system integration work to pull live data for reporting out of existing business systems.
