Fiftieth Falcon's Fish Farming Feedback Score: Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF Read More...

Ford Commercial Diving Services, who trade as 'Blast Off', are based in Tasmania and specialise in providing underwater services to the Australian fish farming industry. They pioneered in-water net cleaning techniques that allow the nets to remain in place without replacement for extended periods. Among other factors, this has contributed to larger nets being used to hold increased fish stocks.

These larger nets, some of which are up to 25 metres deep, have to be inspected at least twice a week for holes or damage and for the removal of dead fish, known as 'morts'. Historically this inspection and mort removal has been done by divers but, with over 90 nets to look after, the use of a Seaeye Falcon ROV has become a more efficient and economic alternative for these routine tasks while divers are kept busy providing the cleaning and repair services.
