Maine Lakes Society and Lakes Alive!
Activity 5: Examining Life in the Depths with the ROV
Have you ever wondered what the lake would look like from a fish’s perspective? In this deep or shallow-water activity, students operate the most high-tech instrument aboard the Melinda Ann, a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV). The ROV is equipped with 150 feet of tether, a camera, thrusters, and lights. They take a diving, loon’s-eye-view of the lake on the video monitor as they navigate the ROV up, down, and around the lake.
