WCS Mozambique was recently awarded a SOFAR Trident ROV. The plan is to use this modern tool to support our fieldwork, primarily on coral reefs. The ROV is useful to save time while performing visual assessment of both known reefs (monitoring) or new reefs (exploration), as well as help us define new areas of interest for MPAs. Exploring deep reefs where diving is more complicated is made easy by the ROV, which can go up to 50m depth. So far, we have tested the ROV in the Primeiras e Segundas Archipelagos and Pemba, both in northern Mozambique. Enjoy the amazing footage we have collected!
