AUS-ROV were in Papua New Guinea where they accompanied a team of marine scientists from FRC Environmental to fulfill the ROV component of a marine and coastal environment assessment for a future port development on the remote island of Daru near the head of the Fly River. AUS-ROV conducted ROV transects at GPS coordinates around the island which were filmed in high definition video for species identification and soft coral monitoring during the construction of the port. Use of ROV technology was adopted by scientists to perform the underwater filming as the local environment is habitat to large saltwater crocodiles, sharks and marine stingers.
