Overview

Overview

 

The Guardian™ is a system that attracts, identifies, and sorts invasive or undesired fish species from native ones, using artificial intelligence and gravity slide. The system restores the ecological balance of waterways by removing the destructive invaders without harming the native fish.

Real-Time Imaging and AI-Enabled Recognition 

The Guardian™ leverages real-time imaging and AI-enabled recognition to identify and sort fish in milliseconds, providing accurate and automatic reporting and action. 

Floating Mobile System 

The Guardian™ is a floating, mobile system that can be easily deployed and repositioned at strategic locations above and below the dam, where invasive fish are concentrated. 

Cost-Effective and Eco-Friendly Method 

The Guardian™ reduces the operational costs and environmental impacts of conventional methods of invasive fish control, such as electrofishing, netting, or chemical treatment.

How It Works



How It Works

 

The Guardian™ attracts fish with a 10 cfs flow descending from an adjustable ASPFishway™, which mimics natural migration cues and river features. 

The fish follow the flow and voluntarily enter the Guardian™, where they swim over the FishFaucet™ and begin a gravity slide through a chute out of water. 

As the fish slide through the chute, they are partially dewatered and scanned by the FishlRecognition™ system, which uses real-time imaging and AI to measure, identify, and report the fish in milliseconds. 

The FishlRecognition™ system sends a signal to the GateKeeper™, which actuates sorting chute gates based on the identification of the fish. Invasive or undesired fish are directed to a removal or collection bin, while native fish are directed back to the river. 

The removal collection bin can be emptied manually or automatically, depending on the configuration of the system. The removed fish can be disposed of or used for other purposes, such as fertilizer, animal feed, or biofuel.
