BAITED UNDERWATER VIDEO
Ever wondered how scientists count fish? One method that is used widely around New Zealand and the world is Baited Underwater Video (BUV). This method uses bait to attract fish in front of a camera. Researchers can then count the fish on the video to get an idea of species abundance and diversity.
LEVEL 4 CONNECTED JOURNAL!
We're featured in the NZ School Journal for Level 4 (ages 10-13): When school starts students around NZ will be able to discover ‘Project Reef’ and the technology and methods we use!

OF PROJECT REEF!
Early-stage analysis (March 2017) of the hydrophone deployed at the Project Reef has identified a humpback whale call! The objective of the acoustic survey is to assess the acoustic diversity at the Project Reef.
Insitu-camera recordings also provide a rich insight into the noises of Project Reef during day and night.
