Maritech Eye gives you full control
Even before gutting of the fish, you can now determine the quality of the catch. Hyperspectral camera technology, 17 years of research and complex algorithms now makes it possible, for the first time, to run automated quality analysis on round white fish at industrial speed.
In November 2020 Maritech, Nofima and Norsk Elektro Optikk (NEO) in collaboration with Lerøy Norway Seafoods and Lerøy Havfisk proudly launched Maritech Eye – the innovation that can revolutionize the fishing industry.
– An excellent example of what is possible to achieve when the business community and research communities collaborate on innovation.Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen, Minister of Fisheries and Seafood.
Increased profitability and less waste
The fish is scanned using light and a hyperspectral camera, and thereby our software gives each fish an automatic quality score based on given criteria. The information is sent to the grader as well as to our LINSiGHT IoT platform for storage and visualization.
As a producer, this gives you complete overview and documentation, and you can plan the production optimally. You can achieve a higher price for the best raw materials, and at the same time a more sustainable production with reduced waste. The solution is the only one of its kind in the world, and therefore also gives you a competitive advantage in the international market – none of your competitors currently have the same opportunity to document the quality of whole white fish.
If you are wondering if this is only suited for the biggest manufacturers, the answer is no. For a long time we have experienced great interest in the market, and estimate that this solution will be used by the vast majority of the manufacturers along the coast within a few years.
