Meet the Guardian LF1, Mark 3: an underwater robot designed to control the population of lionfish and reduce their impact on the ecosystems. The unit can stun and collect up to 10 lionfish before bringing them to the surface. As Colin Angle, co-founder of RSE explains:
The Lionfish are destroying the coral reef and decimating fish populations in the Atlantic. The latest innovations incorporated into the RSE Guardian LF1, enable the undersea robotic solution to go deeper, fish longer and pull in a larger haul.
The Guardian LF1, Mark 3 can reach a depth of 400ft. It runs for up to 60 minutes on a single battery. The ROV can be controlled from a smartphone or using a game controller.
