As part of HM Government of Gibraltar’s drive to increase its marine monitoring and surveillance capabilities, the Department of the Environment and Climate Change, together with the US based company View into the Blue and Wright Tech Media, have recently installed a state of the art underwater camera in the Gibraltar Marine Reserve which is the first of its kind in Europe.
The underwater camera forms yet another element of the wider marine surveillance programme carried out by the Department of the Environment and Climate Change to monitor the status of marine habitats and species within British Gibraltar Territorial Waters. A dedicated webpage has been created within our Thinking Green Website to provide local scientists and members of the public with real time footage of Gibraltar’s rich underwater environment. To view the webpage, please click the link above, which provides users with a simple fish identification guide that will be continuously expanded, together with a comments box to enable users to report any marine life activity.
Teens4Oceans has been bringing the ocean to our viewers for over a decade. The Clean Sweep technology designed by View Into The Blue has truly given us an unprecedented platform to share our beloved ocean. However, these cameras have their associated costs for continued maintenance and live streaming. Any donations are greatly appreciated and provide immediate support for keeping the ocean right at your finger tips.
