Cage inspection at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) pilot farm
Testing the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), developed in the frame of the H2020 TAPAS project.
Models to assess carrying capacity of freshwater lake systems
Evaluating and developing a range of approaches from simple equations to more complex GIS-based catchment models.
Developing models for Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) systems
Evaluating and developing models for marine cage aquaculture systems.
Assessing alternate polyculture farm practices on ecosystem services and sustainability
The Marine Institute’s case study assesses Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) at its Marine Research site, Lehanagh Pool, in Connemara.
Semi-extensive and extensive pond systems development
TAPAS is developing models for semi-extensive and extensive pond systems used to grow carp in Hungary.
TAPAS Deployment Retrieval
The TAPAS team downloaded the first data recorded by our current profiler.
Current Profiler deployment
The TAPAS team deployed a current profiler on the South-East border of the fish farm in Malta and was placed on the seabed at 12 meters depth.
Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV)
The TAPAS team is surveying the area of the fish farm in Malta to see what lives beneath the surface using a mini Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV).
