Description (include details on usage, files and paper references)The Fish4Knowledge project ( is pleased to announce the availability of 2 subsets of our tropical coral reef
fish video and extracted fish data. See below for 3 other Fish4Knowledge project datasets.

Dataset #1: a 10 minute video clip from all working cameras taken at 08:00 every day in the project Oct 1, 2010 - July 10, 2013, giving 5824 video clips (of 7-30 Mb). Note, some dates are missing. This data allows analysis of fish patterns over annual cycles and comparison between sites. About 2.5 M fish were detected.

Dataset #2: 690 10 minute video clips from the 9 cameras taken from 06:00 - 19:00 on April 22, 2011 (out of 702 possible). This data allows analysis of fish patterns over a full day period and comparison between sites. About 16 M fish were detected.

For each 10 minute video clip, there is also a CSV file that describes all fish ( of a sufficient size) that were detected in the video,
including a boundary and a species identification. There were up to 24 species recognized.

You might find the datasets useful for target detection in a tough undersea environment, multi-class recognition (where there are many false detections and mis-classifications), or even a bit of ecological analysis.

Use of the data should include this citation:

Can I also mention 3 other Fish4Knowledge project ground-truthed datasets:

* Underwater benchmark dataset for target detection against complex backgrounds
* Fish species recognition
* Trajectory-based fish behavior analysis
