Perna Viridis gender can not be identified in its shell, however, it can be classified by identifying the color of its gonad. The male green mussel has creamy white colors while the female green mussel has reddish gonad. The proponent of this paper will propose an identification technique by image processing, fuzzy logic and K nearest neighbor. The image processing will gather RGB data for each sample and the gathered data will be used to identify the gender of the green mussel using fuzzy logic and K nearest neighbor. Fuzzy logic identified 75.76% of male green mussels and 100% female green mussels, on the other hand, the K nearest neighbor classifies the male and female green mussels on the first trial.
