  • 14/01/2016 APRICOT - Automated Pinbone Removal in Cod and Whitefish

    The main objective of the project was to develop a technology and equipment to cut pinbones from fish fillets by automatic means. Pinbones are a series of bones in fish fillets, located at the most valuable part of the fillet. These bones are usually removed from the fillet by manual cutting. This manual operation is labor intensive, tedious, and requires skill that takes time and practice to develop. It is critical that the cutting operation (whether manual or automatic) does not leave any bones or bone fragments in the fillet. At the same time, it is important to minimize the amount of high-value raw material that is cut away with the pinbone removal.
