The consumption of aquatic products in France increased steadily between 1993 and 2004. However, since 2004, all sectors taken together, consumption has been sluggish at around 35kg/per capita/per year (Ofimer, 2007).
All the qualitative studies undertaken over the past few years on the way in which aquatic products are perceived, show a positive but contrasting image. Two dominant features stand out: the force of the marine symbol and the benefits to health brought about by the consumption of aquatic products. Very quickly however, barriers to consumption are mentioned in discussion groups. The issue of fish bones is brought up by the majority of people questioned.

In order to meet consumer requirements, the aim of this project is to develop an automated deboning system for all types of fish fillet.

This project was labelised by the AQUIMER Pole of Competitiveness on the 13th July, 2010.
