Celebrate National Science Week (13-21 August) with the Department of Fisheries and find out about our use of innovative Baited Remote Underwater Video (BRUV) technology!
BRUV is a method of monitoring the marine environment using bait to attract fish into the field of view of a video camera. The number of fish, variety and distribution of species is recorded and later analysed. As well as being non-invasive, BRUVs can also be used in parts of the ocean difficult for traditional diver-based monitoring.
Visit the Department of Fisheries stand at the Perth Science Festival – 13-14 August – to view videos of the Perth Canyon, the Dunsborough and Bunbury artificial reefs and some of WA’s fascinating marine life.
More BRUV footage can be viewed at the Department of Fisheries YouTube Channel.
