Technology

THE COUNTING TECHNOLOGY

The counter uses VAKI computer vision technology originally developed for counting fry, smolts and juvenile fish. Fish pass over a light source where an imaging line scanning camera is used to grab silhouette image of every single fish. The silhouettes are analyzed and used for counting and size estimation.

THE COUNTING SOFTWARE

The advanced software is used to count the fish as they pass the counting area. All fish images are stored and can be used for verifying the count. The screenshot to the right shows one second of smolt counting where the capacity is up to 100 fish per second.

Macro App

Among other features the Macro app provides the user the option to run the counter, view the results and email the count report from a smart phone or tablet.

Automatic Report Function

The automatic count report gives valuable and detailed information on the counting. The report can be supplied to the receiver of fish along with the counting file containing the images of all the fish. The throughput chart shows the rate of fish passing thru the counter. With this information the quality of the count can be assessed by checking for any overload.

Size Estimation

The average weight and the size distribution of the counted fish are showon a graph along with information on the total biomass of the fish.
