Benthic Camera Sled
CFF has constructed a benthic camera sled for documenting habitat type and presence/abundance of benthic organisms. This sled can be towed by smaller (<25 m LOA) vessels or allowed to drift with the tide on larger vessels (>25 m LOA). The sled is equipped with LED strobes and a forward-mounted camera. It is also possible to outfit the sled with the Hydrolab data logger to document concurrent environmental data, and can be outfitted with downward facing cameras, as well, to get a more direct view of the seafloor.
