Floaty Boat: Precise Delivery for Coral Larvae

Season 3 Episode 1 | 4m 49s

Introducing Floaty Boat, a remotely operated vehicle designed to streamline coral larval restoration efforts. Once coral spawn matures into larvae, they're delicately poured into a 100-liter bladder. Floaty Boat employs a larval-friendly pump to transfer them without harm. Equipped with a real-time substrate assessment camera, Floaty Boat revolutionizes coral restoration with precision and care.
