Utility of ROV’s (remote operated vehicles) for surveying reef fish assemblages below diving depths

Supervisor team may include:

Dr Neville Barrett

This project utilises a ROV (Seabotix LVB300) to be deployed at a range of test locations in eastern Tasmania to both determine the effectiveness of ROV's for reef fish surveys, and the appropriate survey design to yield quantitatively robust results for monitoring programs. Surveys may focus on MPAs (State and Commonwealth).

Suitable for February or July start date.
