Periodic Reporting for period 1 - SEASCANN (INTEGRATIVE VISION SYSTEM OF ON-BOARD SORTING OF EXPLOITED STOCKS AND REAL-TIME COMMUNICATION WITH LAND)
Reporting period: 2017-02-01 to 2017-04-30
SKAGINN’s proposition is to sort the caught fish onboard with an automated equipment boasting a vision system, to register and transfer real-time useful information to several stakeholders (fishing companies & processors, authorities).
The objectives of the project are to improve components to achieve a completely-automatic solution, 100% faster than manual sorting with a proved accuracy of 99% in sorting and grading seven North-Atlantic species (current cod, haddock, pollock, + hake, mackerel, herring and redfish), with data being transferred in real-time to standardised databases. We also aim at creating awareness amongst stakeholders in the fishing value chain in Europe.
By 2022, we expect to have sold around 700 units and achieve a 100 M cumulative turnover. The support of two of the most important fishing companies in Iceland already achieved will help reduce time-to-market and maximise the impact in the target countries (Iceland, Scandinavia, N-W Europe).
