[Coral-List] Infrared-video

Dear all,

I wondered if anyone has experience in using Infrared video techniques 
to quantify nighttime activity of fishes on coral reefs. I know there 
is a variety of relatively cheap set-ups available (<$2000), but I also 
found out that these do not get the best references by the people who 
have used them. I'm looking for a setup that can be left alone on the 
reef, either as a single unit or by a cable to a nearby (300m) 
monitoring station. The quality of the images should be very high as we 
want to be able to recognize fishes (>5cm) to the species level.

Any suggestions or thoughts?

Best regards,
