Grades all major groundfish species automatically, with up to 99% accuracy.
The system records each individual in terms of size, color and species, offering the potential for full traceability.
The process is improved by rapid automatic grading and by eliminating the inconsistencies associated with manual grading by workers.
The system requires no operator so workers can focus on other areas of processing.
Easy to adapt into various applications for processing lines, both onshore and onboard
The Vision Whole Fish Grader by Skaginn 3X is the world's first whole fish grading machine that uses a vision unit to grade groundfish based on size, color, quality (blood color of the fish) and species. Most graders work require a pre-sorted catch, but the Skaginn 3X grader eliminates the need for pre-grading the catch by the workforce.
The system is fully automatic and eliminates the need for manual grading by workers, meaning workers can focus on other areas of processing. The system has high throughput and can increase the overall processing flow.
The system records each individual in terms in size and species and offers accurate catch/production reports useful for production management and electronic catch logbooks. The grader is compact and can be onshore based and onboard facilities.
By adding our Vision Whole Fish Grader for Groundfish to our tub transportation system, the system can offer full traceability where the system records each individual fish in terms of size, species, location, date and the tub it enters. This means that the system can provide accurate information on production in real time and the data follows the tub-tracking system throughout the whole processing and value chain. The system provides detailed reports on the catch breakdown and size categories, which the oneshore production facility and sales team can access in real time.
