An Efficient Image Processing Based Method for Gills Segmentation from a Digital Fish Image
Abstract—Abstract The quality and freshness of a fish sample is mainly affected due to the handling and storage conditions during the post harvesting period. The retention time and storage medium are the two main factors affecting the fish quality. This paper presents an image processing based method for automatic and efficient segmentation of gills from the fish sample image which can be used for fish freshness validation and determination of any pesticide from the fish sample under test. The implemented algorithm has produced a maximum correlation of 92.4% with the ground truth results obtained from experts. The method used for gills segmentation is fast and simple.
