Putting the feelers out for developers competent in who would like to volunteer some time with us 🌊

We're passionate about development and leveraging technology to help our oceans πŸ’™

Celebrating 10k raised!!

We've just raised funds to deploy a live streaming camera at one of our favourite dive sites Rapid Bay which is home to the elusive leafy seadragon!

We cant wait to get this camera down and share it with you all πŸŽ₯

Ocean data and technology often remains inaccessible and cost-prohibitive, limiting access to well-funded researchers. At AusOcean, we're changing this.

The AusOcean "rig" is a low-cost sea surface platform for supporting ocean science in coastal waters. Despite their relatively small size, rigs have been successfully deployed in South Australian coastal waters for many months at a time, proving to be very reliable against harsh oceanic conditions.

Open source tools provide an economic advantage for science.

Review finds significant cost savings when using free and open source scientific hardware over proprietary equivalents -bit.ly/2KRJXWB

The holy grail of underwater video technology is the development of software which can automatically identify species 🐠 🐟 🐑

This means creating software which performs accurate count, size, and species ID of fish and other marine species in real-time πŸŽ₯

Such applications will revolutionise the way marine science is conducted and drastically expand our data acquisition capabilities.
