Introduction to Ropeless Fishing


with Bob Melvin

Calendar Next available session starts Sep 26, 2023

Working subsea with Ropeless Fishing requires the knowledge of acoustic sound propagation, the effects of temperature and salinity, acoustic triggering, and positioning using range and bearing. Understanding the physics and fundamentals will make using the technology viable to operators.
