Marine Biosecurity

Geo Oceans offers diverless technologies and services for invasive marine species (IMS) inspections.

High definition video, still images and inspection data are captured and viewed in real-time using towed cameras, ROVs and specialised software. The equipment can be transported on planes for quick mobilisation with small teams, anywhere at anytime.
For IMS surveys we work closely with Viridis International – specialist biosecurity consultants – to deliver the full range of biosecurity services and capabilities, including approved biofouling and IMS inspectors. This combination of biosecurity expertise coupled with our innovative diverless technology provides the industry with an efficient and cutting-edge approach to meeting their biosecurity obligations.

The combination of biosecurity survey capabilities with diverless technlogies provides industry with another effective approach to meet biosecurity marine area and marine infrastructure survey obligations. These capabilities may serve as an early warning system, identifying the introduction and spread of an IMS or be used following the discovery of an IMS, fulfilling subsequent IMS control and management requirements.
