Fish Authentication with NeoSpectra spectral sensors
The global market for fish and seafood has grown significantly in recent years. However, with this development also an increasing number of mislabeled fish and seafood along the processing chain in ports, markets and restaurants occures.
High quality fish are replaced by similar looking fish of lower quality. This happens partly accidentally, partly on purpose.
NeoSpectra’s NIR spectral sensor solutions can largely impact the identification methods used to authenticate fish species.
Current fish identification methods are often costly and require special laboratory equipment with trained staff.
The following application note outlines the capabilities of the NeoSpectra micro-spectral sensor to determine the quality of various fish species.
