The salmon lice is a huge challenge for the aquaculture industry. Effort is therefore put on developing new methods for effective detection and objective counting of the lice. This is an exiting application for the Underwater Hyperspectral Imager (UHI). Our promising results from last year will be brought further in 2016 through the project Automated classification and counting of salmon lice with UHI.
Ecotone will do the project together with Akvaplan-niva and The Norwegian Seafood Research Fund (FHF).
