The decline in stocks of sea trout and wild salmon on the west coast of Norway has highlighted the need for a autonomous, non-destructive sampling method. For this reason, fish biologist at NORCE LFI are currently developing a trap with the overall goal of recording wild fish for research or conservation purposes.
Mohn Technology contribute with our high resolution FRS camera applying AI to detect passing fish. This new solar powered surveillance system was just deployed at Dale, Norway. The camera system is designed to use as little power and data traffic as possible, and the solar system was assembled and tested at Mohn Technology before deployment.
The system allows the researchers at NORCE LFI to get information about fish population and migrations directly to their computers from remote areas without access to electricity, and we hope more systems like this can aid research in this important field.
