It is controlled from the surface area utilizing a tether however consists of an auto-pilot and a computer system vision system efficient in identifying lionfish from other types.

The robotic costs around $1,000 however might net its operator $1,500 to $2,000 worth of lionfish on an excellent day, its creators claim (assuming the fish can be cost food). The latest version of the robot can dive to 1,000 feet, below the reach of sport scuba divers.
