Since 1961 the Fish consumption has increased, twice as high as the population, according to http://www.fao.org/.
The statistics show that aquaculture has its highest peak about 2016 with 171 million tonnes production, so, fish farming has become one of the major contributors to the world food providers, here a few benefits of aquaculture:
Increased production of food for human consumption.
Substitution of import by local production.
High-efficiency protein production.
Creation of employment, especially in rural areas.
As the fish demands increase, the need for efficient managing technics is getting higher. Robotics and remotely operated vehicles are playing a great role in this industry, here below some of the benefits using ROVs on aquaculture:
Delta ROV allows fish farming operators to monitor conditions, growth, behavior, and health of the fish stock, with gripper and manipulators ROV can recover dead fishes, samples, etc.
In order to monitor (Nets, Filters, buoys, anchors) and comply with regulatory requirements and monitoring harmful species (sharks, sealions) out of the farm, Delta ROV is ready to operate 24/7 on the fish farms.
With the usage of ROVs, operators can develop methods for increasing efficiency and safety on Aquaculture industry.
Very often we get asked about boat surveys and what are the benefits of doing so, this week we are going to discuss details on the importance of marine surveys.
What is a Marine Survey?
it is a comprehensive check-up for boats, designed to identify existing problems, point out areas to improve, and give a detailed picture of the overall health of the vessel.
The two major reasons to hire a Marine Surveyor are:
1 Get an Unbiassed Assessment
When you are buying a boat, especially second-hand, the current owner may not be aware of any existing problems, if there is any, This is when a marine survey is very important before settlement.
During a repurchase survey the marine surveyor has the opportunity to assess all aspects of the vessel:
As a result, the surveyor submits a report, with recommendations and a conclusion, that can help the price negotiation and repairs needed.
2 Get Profesional Valuation
Many marine underwriters (insurers), require a complete survey to be completed prior they will ensure a pre-owned vessel.
A professional marine surveyor will inform whether any repair needed to be completed and the cost of each repair accurately, this information is vital and can be used to determine if the boat is a good value and what is estimated provision in years ahead for upkeep.
Buying a boat is a big step, and a huge investment, a Surveyor will be your best advisor during this process.
