Automated FISh Ageing

Status: Completed (March 2009)
Coordinator:  Institut Français de Recherche pour l’Exploration de la Mer - IFREMER

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​AFISA aimed to develop an automated and robust systems for routine ageing of fish otoliths using pattern recognition or statistical inference. These systems were evaluated for three species from several fish stocks:

  • Cod from Faeroes, North Sea and North East Artic
  • Plaice from the eastern English Channel and Iceland
  • Anchovy from the Bay of Biscay

The automated ageing systems ​were tested against quality-controlled sample data and a cost-benefit analysis was undertaken for comparison against current costs.​​
