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?
