PROJECT

SPECTRAFISH deals with the development of a hyperspectral imaging technology for the quality inspection of fish products. To this end, starting in October 2013 and for 2 years, the project will benefit from a grant by EC´s Seventh Framework Programme under the scheme “Research for the benefit of SMEs”.

During the first year of the project, a laboratory test-rig will be used to couple the most critical hyperspectral image features with reference values of selected parameters measured with traditional methods. During the second year, a hyperspectral imaging system will be built to pre-competitive prototype level and subsequently validated in industry for the rapid, non-invasive and simultaneous measurement of several safety and quality attributes.

The consortium counts 8 partners covering 5 countries (Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Spain and United Kingdom) and is coordinated by IRIS. The project beneficiaries cover the finfish supply and value chain and feature 5 SMEs. The research carried out by 3 RTD performers (IRIS, UCD and IIM-CSIC) will result in a more competitive European finfish sector.
