Shape information can be used for object classification, recognition, and shape evaluation. Using shape information, we have been able to
recognize fish species, detect human intrusion, and grade oyster shape quality.
Measurements of the abundance, distribution, and movement of fish are critical to fishery management. On rivers in the western United States,
migrating fish frequently encounter a variety of man-made barriers, including hydroelectric and diversion dams and associated reservoirs.
The detrimental impact on fish stocks are substantial. Out FishID system helps monitoring fish migration patterns and measuring abundance.
We have used the same shape analysis technique for oyster shell quality evaluation. We measure oyster size and separate shape quality into
good, broken, banana, irregular shapes.
