VisuaLice

Automated sea lice detection by computer vision.

Accurate lice counts on salmon farms are vital for environmentally responsible control. This is currently done by manual inspection of anaesthetised fish. We will develop an automatic, remote system to inspect fish as they swim freely in the pen, so improving fish welfare and benefiting the industry
