Net and moorings
Ensure mooring lines and anchor points are secured to guarantee structural integrity. This is necessary when setting up initial pen installations and to adhere to regulatory agency guidelines. An ROV can also be used to monitor smolt introductions, general health and welfare. Temporarily patch holes in nets using the Net Repair System.
Our operations take place in several locations of the Chilean Patagonia, where the ROVs face extreme weather and sea conditions on a daily basis.

What Is Aquaculture?
Aquaculture is also known as fish farming. Fish farmers breed, raise and harvest fish, mollusks, crustaceans, inverts, algae, aquatic plants and other organisms in controlled environments for human consumption.
The desire for healthy, sustainable animal proteins such as marine creatures has driven a steady incline in demand for seafood for many years. Aquaculture is a more sustainable alternative to wild-capture fishing, which has nearly depleted our oceans. The aquaculture industry is even more environmentally friendly than farming land creatures such as cows and chickens. When done correctly, aquaculture requires less water and food and produces significantly lower carbon dioxide emissions levels.
The popularity of aquaculture has been growing rapidly worldwide for the last 50 years. By 2030, the Global Aquaculture Alliance predicts more than half of all seafood for human consumption will be produced on fish farms. This "blue revolution" has presented new challenges and opportunities for innovations to improve the ways we farm fish.
