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.
