Constant efforts are made to develop existing and new services on the high-tech, innovative software platform, which will soon enable each farmer to use the Stingray system for more than optical delousing. This will lead to fewer installations of different types of equipment in the pens, and give our users a general overview and access to regular reports.
Today, lice counting is carried out manually. This is both weather-dependent and time-consuming for the farmers. There are often several people involved in manual counting at the pens. Lice counting can also be stressful and deadly for the fish, which are physically removed from the pen for manual counting.
By using camera vision and software, lice counting can be fully automated. The application for lice counting is expected to be launched in 2017.
