– We are humbled to be awarded the prize and see it as an acknowledgement of the long term development of a system that will revolutionize the way we harvest the ocean’s resources, says sales and marketing coordinator Hege Hammersland-White.

 

CAMERA AND LIGHT SYSTEM

Deep Vision is a camera and light system mounted in the trawl that takes images of all fish passing through. The system is currently being used for research purposes where fish can be measured for size and species without bringing them onboard the vessel and subsequently discarding them. The system is being developed for use in commercial trawl fisheries where the skipper will be able to program the system for size and species of desired catch. Deep Vision will automatically sort the catch in the trawl so that desired catch goes into the trawl and the rest swims through.

 

FUTURE IMPLEMENTATION IN TRAWL FISHERIES

Scantrol Deep Vision has developed the system in close cooperation with Institute for Marine research and the award money will be used to connect with and discuss the system with the end users in the commercial trawl fisheries:

– The award money gives us an opportunity to invite to a meeting with fishermen to discuss how the system can best be implemented for use in trawl fisheries, says Hammersland-White.
