Our 5.9m research vessel 'Mudskipper' allows us to get out to some of the more remote sites around the Gladstone region, to collect samples and conduct field work. We have a range of field equipment including: • TOV-2 Towed Video system • Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations • Fishing gear (e.g. seine nets, gill nets and crab pots, fyke net, cast nets) • Diving Pulse Amplitude Modulated Fluorometer • ROV (Remotely operated vehicle) Check out this video below explaining our Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership, as an example of some of the fieldwork we have carried out in the region.
