Deep Trekker Announces Debut of New Net Repairer at Aquaculture 2016

17 February 2016

GLOBAL - Deep Trekker Inc. announced today they will be debuting their new Net Repairer and offering live demonstrations of their aquaculture remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) at Aquaculture 2016 in Las Vegas, USA February 22-26, 2016.

Anyone interested in learning how to easily and regularly inspect their submerged aquaculture infrastructure are invited to visit booth 403 for their personal demo.

The team will be showcasing how the portable solution is a vital asset to every fish farm, giving individuals the ability to inspect their pens and fish health at any moment, without a diver.

Now, with the Net Repairer, farm managers and employees are able to temporarily mend any nets that have been compromised, reducing the risk of fish escapes and loss.

Until now, every time a net was compromised the farm was required to call in a dive team to repair it as quickly as possible.

Now with Deep Trekker’s new Net Repairer, farmers can fix the compromised area and wait until there are multiple mends that are needed before bringing in a dive team.

“Farmers need to be able to inspect their farms without having to wait for divers to show up,” commented Sam Macdonald, Deep Trekker President.

“We have given them the ability to do this with a small, affordable, and easy-to-use package. In return Deep Trekker ROVs have become the de facto standard for aquaculture inspections.”
