Baited Remote Underwater Video (Bruv)

Orkney Skate Trust has designed and tested two different BRUV frames specific to recording high quality footage of Skate in the wild. The MK1 BRUV  is a horizontal viewing system which is ideal for documenting the species in the natural environmnent, as well as creating valuable data for our population dynamics research. The MK2 frame is a vertical orientated frame with the aim to record high quality video of the dorsal side of the fish for population dynamic studies tying in with Skate Spotter. Orkney Skate Trust latest BRUV designs are able to reach waters up to 250m.
