LOS ANGELES–The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration( NOAA) apportioned Los Angeles-based SafetySpect Inc. a grant to continue making advances with its new technology. SafetySpect is developing technology to rapidly detect fish species and tone at the marketplace. NOAA granted the company $149,264.

The federal agency fixed $3.1 million concessions to 21 small and medium-sized businesses in 14, in all. All gifts were awarded to support technological advancements in aquaculture, business and recreational fisheries, weather predictions and ocean modeling.

“The flesh of numerous fish species is similar in taste and composition and, hence, it is difficult to identify genus in fillet form. SafetySpect is developing a tabletop system incorporating multimode spectroscopy for real-time quality, adulteration and traceability( QAT) assessment of fish parcels, ” the company’s abstract to NOAA stated. “The fish portion will be placed on the scanner layer for immediate analysis. The multimode spectroscopy estimation will be analyzed use algorithms developed using artificial intelligence methodologies and will expose the fish species, aspect and nutritional content in seconds.”

SagetySpect’s first chapter will able to analyze and assess 10 to 50 of the most commonly spent fish species in the United States.

“This technology has the potential to be used as a rapid categories identification technique in restaurants, seafood markets and other points along the seafood chain, ” the abstract continued.

Also receiving funding was DiveViz, a San Diego firm developing a forecasting model for ocean visibility. The representation would use crowdsourced data. DiveViz will receive a NOAA grant of $149,987.

An abstract submitted to NOAA staff said the DiveViz modeling technology would “lead to more coordinated and timely responses to high visibility phenomena for the recreational, commercial, scientific and armed diving communities and improve advanced act planning for all ocean activities.”

“DiveViz is a platform that requires accurate ocean visibility reports and calculates to the diving industry, ” the abstract continued. “DiveViz will ensure that the millions of Scuba divers and snorkelers know when to intention their dives and know whether to spend their season and exertion performing it.”

Marina del Rey Anglers release white sea bass

May 5th, 2020 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Marina del Rey Anglers release white sea bass”

MARINA DEL REY–A batch of white sea bass were liberated from a pen in Marina del Rey, April 7. The fish were released because meat was no longer available at the write. What follows is the statement Marina del Rey Anglers posted on its Facebook page- along with a few photos- about the release.

“The White Seabass are out and free. They are big-hearted and healthy. We have a big tide shaking and maybe some will follow those tides out to the open ocean. Maybe they will use the harbor as an estuary and growing quite some more before migrating.

This batch that we got of 3,700 had very few die offs. The Pen Pals track the’ Morts’ and record them. A few are taken by the hubs and DFG scientists to verify their health before the give us the green light to exhaust them.

That they were released today with rainfall and glooms and the COVID-1 9 shut down means that few is likely to be hooked by local fishermen. And astonish , no sealions were on hand at all at the docks when the gang established up to release them today.

There[ were] fairly passes to offset light and fast creation of it. We did not have a graduation march playing. Such fanfare is for sunny epoches and not when we are all wearing masks.

It was over in less than 30 instants from entrance to departure for most. But the fisheries industry truly were the ones who did not want to go. Some smuggle past the crowder and tried to hang in the safety of the confine. But when all the end gates are out the fish got the hint and float free.

They are totally on their own. We are wholly out of food. They are not starving but when they get hungry, they will migrate to find their preferred prey.”
