Brief description

AUV Sirius (IMOS Platform code: SIRIUS) was deployed near Whyalla in South Australia in June 2008.

The objective of the trip was to document nocturnal cuttlefish camouflage behaviour near spawning grounds in Whyalla, SA. In excess of 100,000 cuttlefish aggregate in this area each year to spawn. The AUV spent one week following the Sir Joseph Banks trip being deployed at night in the shallow waters around these spawning grounds. In all, 35 dives were completed over a 6 day/night period. These short dives allowed the AUV to operate in very shallow waters where the cuttlefish are known to aggregate.

The dive reports from this campaign summarise AUV activity during each dive. Data for this campaign will soon be available.
