BRUVS deployments in Timor Sea Banks and Shoals (Montara 4)

Stereo Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS) were successfully deployed and retrieved at each of the 3 shoals (Baracuda East , Goeree Shoal, Vulcan Shoal). Deployments were restricted to <50 m depth and each unit was separated from its nearest neighbour by >250 m. In general 24 stereo BRUVS were deployed at each shoal.

This project is a co-investment between PTTEPAA and AIMS, in order to build scientific knowledge on a number of shoal features in the area near Montara and was undertaken between 19/9/16 - 24/9/16.
