We'll be in Vegas for World Aquaculture 2016

Kiara Vallier   |   January 22, 2016

Ayr, Ontario Canada – January 22, 2016 - Deep Trekker Inc. announced today that they will be offering live demonstrations of their aquaculture remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) at the World Aquaculture Society’s Aquaculture 2016 in Las Vegas, USA February 22-26, 2016. Anyone interested in learning how to easily and regularly inspect their submerged aquaculture infrastructure are invited to visit booth 403 for their personal demo.

The team will be showcasing how the portable solution is a vital asset to every fish farm, giving individuals the ability to inspect their pens and fish health at any moment, first hand, and without a diver. The event brings together aquaculture and fisheries professionals from around the globe, making it the ideal location for Deep Trekker to showcase their aquaculture-inspection remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

"Deep Trekker ROVs have become the de facto standard for aquaculture inspections."

With the world’s growing population, the need for fish farms will only increase to meet the demand for food and protein. At most aquaculture sites, at least 90% of the infrastructure and farm is submerged and out of view. With tools such as the Deep Trekker ROVs, aquaculture farmers can have constant eyes on their farm in order to maintain a proper ecosystem.

“Farmers need to be able to inspect their farms without having to wait for divers,” commented Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President. “We have given them the ability to do this with a small, affordable, and easy to use package, and in return Deep Trekker ROVs have become the de facto standard for aquaculture inspections.”

Deep Trekker will be at booth 403, with their remotely operated vehicles and 250 gallon test tank, and will be showcasing their newest options specifically designed for the aquaculture industry. “After months of trials and testing, we are happy to be bringing our mort retrieval system to the Aquaculture 2016 conference this year,” commented Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President. “The mort pusher will change how current inspections of fish farms are conducted.”

With the use of the mort pusher mounted on the ROV, not only can farmers inspect their nets and pens daily, but they also have the ability to immediately retrieve any morts from the pen in order to perform diagnostic tests. This allows them to gain a real time understanding of what is happening on their farms.
