This paper describes an Automated Visual Inspection System SIVATUN" for quality control of Tuna Meat which automate manual inspection operation. Depending on whether tuna are reared in cages or in the open sea and depending on the method of capture (electroslaughtering, shooting, etc.), differences are observed and changes take place in the organic nature of Blue Fin Tuna (Thunnus Thynnus) meat, affecting appearance and quality. These changes are caused by an increase and accumulation of lactate, which negatively affects the quality. This drop in quality translates into loss of value of the meat in Japanese tuna markets (Tsukiji market and Sashimi market are the main destinations of tuna captured off the southeast coast of Spain). In order to evaluate these changes, Japanese experts are employed to carry out visual inspections, which therefore constitute a subjective assessment. This paper describes the development of an automated visual inspection system that can analyze, ...
