In aquaculture,monitoring fish stock at all stages of production is essential. The computer vision becomes more sophisticated and cost effective, and yet it is not used to its full potential in the aquaculture.

In particular, physical dimensions of fish could be collected from electronic images. However, the absolute scale of the photographed fish is often unknown. One approach is to photograph fish next to measuring ruler. Surprisingly very little research has been done on how to extract scale (as pixels-per-millimetre or dots-per-inch) from images automatically.

This presentation will show how our team is progressing in solving this interesting aquaculture problem, which has direct applications in other areas such as forensics, archaeology, environmental sciences.
