Inspect interior and predator nets, moorings, perform feeding assessments, and quickly retrieve morts
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.
Perform a Fast, Thorough Aquaculture Net Inspection
Aquaculture net inspections are completed quickly and easily, often in less than a half hour per pen due to the ROV’s ability capture video in a 270-degree vertical arc. Inspect nets from top to bottom, often in only one or two passes around the circular pen. Optional side-facing cameras allow technicians to perform lateral inspections with ease, simply flying the ROV around the cage.
The one-person portability and fully integrated DTG2 and DTX2 systems ensure that multiple cages can be inspected in quick succession; simply pick up the mini ROV and move to the next pen. Another advantage of performing a cage inspection with a remote operated vehicle is that the unit operates via internal battery power. There is no need for a topside power supply, generator, or clumsy external control boxes.
