For Aquaculture monitoring and inspection using a mini remote operated vehicle, or ROV, there is no better tool than the Deep Trekker DTG2 and DTX2 ROVs. Whether it is routine net inspection, lighting, feeding, mooring inspection, or mort lift troubleshooting, or stock monitoring, the DTG2 and DTX2 are the easiest, most effective, and portable system to get the job done in no time at all.
Using ROV for Mort Removal
Timely mort removal in aquaculture environments is very important. The Deep Trekker DTG2 ROV can be fitted with our optional mort retrieval tools, ensuring that morts are moved to the vacuum lift system, or taken to the surface for removal during routine inspection. The patented pitch capability of the DTG2 makes scooping up morts possible without the need for diver intervention.
Scouting Fish Farm
Finding the ideal location is a critical step for any successful fish farming operation. Another valuable use of an ROV for aquaculture is scouting for farm locations. You can explore the terrain at the bottom of lakebeds or along ocean floors. You’ll gain a clear view of the proposed areas ecosystem and accurately identify if the site complies with government regulations. Once your farm is up and running, you can use your ROV to help you collect and test sediment and water samples on a regular basis.
ROV Aquaculture Stock Monitoring CapabilitieS
A Deep Trekker ROV enables you to monitor the health of your stock. Use it to detect signs of unusual fish behavior that could indicate a potential health problem, as well as any changes in the underwater environment. You can also determine whether your feed machines are functioning properly. There is no worry of a generator’s gas or noise pollution that could endanger fish safety during aquaculture stock monitoring procedures.
Retrieving Lost Equipment
Accidentally dropping valuable equipment or personal items can be a frequent occurrence when working around water in aquaculture operations. An ROV can be fitted with attachments that enables you to retrieve these items and return them to the surface. This prevents the need to hire a professional diver and eliminates the cost associated with replacing expensive equipment.
