Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants for human consumption, or for producing ornamental species and other products such as pearls. There are various stages of aquaculture operations including hatchery operations, nurseries and grow-out operations which farm fingerlings or juveniles to marketable sizes. Aquaculture can be carried out in freshwater, brackish water or marine water. There are a number of different systems that can be used for aquaculture, including ponds, tanks, pens and floating cages. It is this infrastructure that is critical to productivity and ROV technology has long been applied to this market as an effective and efficient solution for inspection and maintenance.


Fish pen inspections

Aquaculture companies involved in fish farming use ROV technology in many stages of production. AUS-ROV can perform inspection of nets to ensure fish security; minimising stock losses from fish escaping and from predators getting in. AUS-ROV perform mooring inspections, sea bed and water quality sampling, benthic testing and benthic macro invertebrate surveys. Aquaculture companies have a constant demand for ROV and Diver services and AUS-ROV is available to facilitate the implementation of these services. Should you require assistance in the management your aquaculture infrastructure through ROV delivered tasks then please contact AUS-ROV today.


Fish stock inspections

ROVs are heavily relied upon in fish farming for fish health monitoring, identifying disease, mortality or unusual behavior, and retrieval of 'mort' fish can also be carried out using ROV. AUS-ROV have a diverse spread of ROV technology and tooling for ensuring your fish stock integrity is maintained and the highest yield achieved for your aquaculture operation. If you would like to discuss how AUS-ROV can provide ROV services for fish stock inspection please send us an email at






Government bodies such as Police, Navy, Customs & Quarantine, Transport & Main Roads and Maritime Safety Authorities rely on ROV service providers to assist in underwater activities which may be outside the normal scope of their commercial divers capabilities. AUS-ROV supports these agencies, often under case sensitive confidential terms.
