Automated quality assessment of headed/gutted whitefish
The purpose of this project is to make a commersial solution for measuring blood in whitefish prior to filleting.
|Time:||1. May 2018 – 31. October 2019|
|Financed by:||Norwegian Seafood Research Fund|
|In cooperation with:||Norsk Elektrooptikk (NEO), Lillebakk, Lerøy Norway Seafoods, Havfisk AS|
Automated quality assessment of headed/gutted (HG) whitefish is high importance for the whitefish industry.
The solution is based on imaging spectroscopy and analytical methods developed at Nofima. The commercial product will be a part of Maritech, and will include a new industrial version of the hyperspectral imager produced by Norsk Elektro Optikk.
The first prototype is operating today at Lerøy Norway Seafoods, Båtsfjord. A second prototype is to be installed in one trawler from Havfisk.
The goal is to launch a commersial product in 2020.
