Automatic data collection
The Moana TD sensor (named Mangōpare within the Moana project) has been developed as a key part of the Moana project
The Moana project is a multi-organisation New Zealand project that aims to vastly improve our understanding of coastal ocean circulation, connectivity and marine heatwaves, to provide information that supports sustainable growth of the seafood industry.
By attaching Moana TD sensors onto fishing gear, accurate and high resolution water temperature data can be collected extensively around New Zealand coastal waters.
Moana TD is currently under test on fishing vessels around New Zealand, and also internationally by the Berring Data Collective
