Global Ocean Wildlife Analysis Network - CLME+ HUB

BRUVS    Global Ocean Wildlife Analysis Network

Brief Description:
The project is utilizing Baited Remote Underwater Video systems (BRUVS) consisting of underwater camera rigs that are being rolled out across the British Overseas Territories aimed to collect important biological information across the Caribbean, South Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans, making it the world鈥檚 largest ocean wildlife monitoring system. The network is being set up as part of the UK Government Blue Belt programme 鈥 which covers more than 4 million square kilometres of ocean. The 66 BRUVS will be used to film and analyse data on many species, including white marlin, sailfish, silky sharks, black triggerfish, loggerhead turtles, Gould鈥檚 squid, bottlenose wedgefish and sea snakes. The Blue Belt Programme is being developed to raise compliance and enforcement thus ensuring that the pristine, unique and highly diverse marine environments will be conserved and sustainably managed into the future.

El proyecto utiliza sistemas de video submarino remoto cebados (BRUVS) que consisten en equipos de c谩maras submarinas en los Territorios Brit谩nicos de Ultramar con el objetivo de recopilar informaci贸n biol贸gica importante en los oc茅anos Caribe, Atl谩ntico Sur, 脥ndico, Pac铆fico y Austral, lo que lo convierte en el El sistema de monitoreo de vida silvestre oce谩nica m谩s grande del mundo. La red se est谩 estableciendo como parte del programa Blue Belt del gobierno del Reino Unido, que cubre m谩s de 4 millones de kil贸metros cuadrados de oc茅ano. Los 66 BRUVS se utilizar谩n para filmar y analizar datos de muchas especies, incluidos el marl铆n blanco, el pez vela, el tibur贸n sedoso, el pez ballesta negro, la tortuga boba, el calamar de Gould, el pez cu帽a mular y las serpientes marinas. El Programa Blue Beltse esta desarrollando para aumentar el cumplimiento y la aplicaci贸n, asegurando as铆 que los entornos marinos pr铆stinos, 煤nicos y muy diversos se conservar谩n y gestionar谩n de manera sostenible en el futuro.
