Dredge monitoring

AFBI have an operational capacity for dredge monitoring, allowing the assessment of both the dredge activity and the dumping to comply with license requirements.

Real-time data

Small temporary moorings are established to supply real-time data to a web-hosted facility reporting temperature, salinity, suspended solids, dissolved oxygen and chlorophyll fluorescence. These data are accessible to the monitoring contractor and to named individuals dependant upon the clients requirements.

Real-time data from the moored instruments are integrated with AFBI’s moored data validation scheme and additional site monitoring to provide detailed information on the environmental consequences, or lack of consequence, of the activity. Shellfish monitoring and disposal site surveys provide a complete package for environmental safety and monitoring compliance.
