To keep track of salmon migrations in real time, First Nations turn to AI

In partnership with Indigenous-led fisheries, researchers in British Columbia deployed an artificial intelligence system to automate the counting of Pacific salmon during their migration. The AI-based tool, which analyzes underwater video, can identify some species of fish with 90 percent accuracy, and Indigenous stewards who participated in the pilot project said not having to count salmon manually freed them up for other important projects.
