Why fish photo-identification and tagging-recapturing systems?

Studying the populations and tracking the individuals of species underwater might be tricky. An effective, fast, inexpensive and non-invasive way of doing so are photo-identification tagging-recapturing systems.

This project aims to improve the reliability of one of this technique on Raja ondulata, a species with very recognisable colour and shape skin patterns.

It will require the development of a photo collection survey to build a complete database to teach’ the recognition algorithms, in addition to diving and fishing campaigns to test the system in different conditions.

The complexity of the project is addressed through a synergy between interdisciplinary IIM-CSIC teams that have worked on several LIFE and Pleamar Programme projects on this topic, such as
