Despite the more carcass species than the Great Barrier Reef, the waters off Darwin are under increasing threat to introduced species, overfishing and climate change.
In a soil to better manage and monitor fish populations in the Maheri, crocodile-infested water from Darwin Harbor, the Northern Territory government automated the process by feeding footage of boasted-mounted cameras into an artificial intelligence platform.
Scientists from the Department of Primary Industry and Resources (DPIR) have automatically switched to GitHub and Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services to develop the open source solution, spending hours of hours, identifying fish species that swam in the cameras Train the machine learning program behind the platform.
The first system is up and running within a month, and over the next six months of development and deployment, its legitimacy abilities are progressively enhanced to the point where the egg can now identify a fish with 95-99 percent accuracy.
The speed of fish identification is also up to the point where the ego can analyze hours of video in minutes, freeing up with dpir scientists for more valuable ecosystem management work.
DePir fisheries scientist Shan Penny said that the system was allowing them to keep an eye on the risk of overfishing, like the golden snapper and black judean, and better snow conservation efforts.
"These are two commercially and recreationally important species in the Northern Territory, but research has proved that they are overfilled around the largest Dorwin area," said Penny.
Dpir's major information official Rowan Dollar is already striving to expand the program based on its early success, including monitoring ferry fish in freshwater systems and equipping business boats with the cameras.
"We can look at a camera on a traveler who is out in the sea and doing the flying identification of the capture, so we can begin to measure by-catch .We can start being able to identify that in real-time, To help better manage the fisheries, "said Frank.
Other fisheries around the world can also adapt the system, which is added to Githab, to conduct fisheries stock in different environments.
In the Northern Territory alone, the value produced by primary industries, including fisheries, reaches over half a billion dollars a year.
Demand for marine resources is expected to grow with global trends, where fish consumption is increasing 3.2 percent a year according to the 2018 United Nations report.
Other state environmental agencies are also looking for car vision solutions to lead sensitive ecosystems, including the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries tracking invasive plant species in a tie-up with CV.
