Meat Yield Sensor Feasibility Study

MMO Ref: HOL0030

Project Name: Meat Yield Sensor Feasibility Study

Organisation: Logistics Institute, University of Hull Business School

Feasibility Study will test various methods of sensing the amount of meat within a live crab. Methods will include infra red light and ultrasonic sensing techniques with an objective to determine within 80% accuracy the meat yield of a crab or if it should be returned to the sea at source significantly reducing waste. The HCFLAG Board would expect, if the feasibility study is successful, for a full application to be brought forward by the University of Hull to develop the Sensor.
