Mackerel gender assessment

Country: 
Worldwide
Summary: 

There are tons of fish in a short period. The differentiation of mackerel`s sex without opening it is a solution to give added value to this fish species as the price for both sexes are different. The interest in this separation is that in Europe the females are most appreciated because of the presence of gonads/caviar inside them and in the Japanese market the males are highly appreciated because of the leton (male gonad). The method is a technological innovation with the use of an automatic classification process. The solution proposed can classify the sex of a mackerel in milliseconds, the accuracy of the colorimetric sensor is 100% and the success of the whole solution (including artificial vision, classification, and movements of the robot) is more than 95%.
