Abstract

This paper presents a clustering approach to estimating the number of individuals present in a set of Amphiprion clarkii (clownfish) observed live from a Taiwanese coral reef. Previous approaches to individual identification have addressed species where there are many individuals with some distinctive pattern and few observations of each. By contrast, fish observations from a fixed camera tend to produce many observations of a few individuals, whose differences in appearance are more quantitative than qualitative. The paper describes a k-means clustering approach to estimating the number of individuals. Although there is no absolute ground truth (e.g. from tagging),
our data analysis shows 6 or 7 individuals were present in a collection of 785 observations.
