Ecology Team Evaluates Using Baited Video Lander
(Feb. 27, 2015)

Preliminary study results look like baited mini-landers are the way to go in future sampling.  Although, we are still reviewing video to confirm these preliminary results, last week’s test suggest that using a bait bag attached to the video landers improves our ability to observe fish. To test this hypothesis, the Ecology team used two identical mini-landers, each carrying three GoPro cameras, (picture Brittany securing the cameras to the lander).  One lander was equipped with bait (a mix of herring and squid), while the other lander was equipped with an identical, but empty, bait bag.  Similar studies by other researchers show that using baited video cameras increases the sightings of fish
