ROV Deployment and Surveys June 2020
ROV Deployment and Surveys
Tender to D/Y Marcato
Waters Off Port Everglades, Fort Lauderdale
The International SeaKeepers Society partnered yet again with Nova Southeastern University’s Professor Paul Arena, and researchers Sydney Panzarino, Michael McDonough, and Tommy Ingalls to deploy a commercial grade mini ROV from the tender to DISCOVERY Yacht Marcato. Their eventual aim is to provide information on the fish communities, which utilize a relatively unknown and unexplored deep water habitat. Due to its depth, SCUBA surveys are restricted, thus an ROV unit could be utilized to record video surveys of these areas.
