Deep Vision is developed by Scantrol Deep Vision AS in cooperation with Norway’s Institute for Marine Research. It consists of a stereo camera and lights mounted in a frame that attaches to the cod end of the trawl. The system takes photos of all fish passing through the trawl before uploading them to the Deep Vision software where the catch can be analysed without bringing the fish aboard the vessel.
The test was an important milestone for the project. Testen var en viktig milepæl for prosjektet, and the plan now is to make Deep Vision commercially available for rental in 2015.
