Revolutionising fish ageing: Using Near Infrared Spectroscopy to Age Fish

Results from the current ‘proof of concept’ study indicate that near infrared (NIR) spectra collected from fish otoliths have potential to estimate the age of Barramundi (Lates calcarifer) and Snapper (Pagrus auratus), with performance varying between species and locality of capture. A...
