Brief description

BRUVS (TM) were deployed in 3 depth zones, 20-30 m, 40-60 m and 90-110 m at 3 shoals near Evans Shoal, 6 Karmt shoals and 6 Sahul shoals as well as 4 adjacent sites in 96-100 m on the shelf in the Timor Sea. A series of 6 BRUVS (TM) were set in a line at each site and depth. \n \nSampling positions, depth, time and associated operational data were secured at the time of deployment.
