Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) technologies dive into the deeper blue, giving us the chance to get up close with the amazing flora and fauna that inhabit our seas.

Your challenge: Analyse a video from ROV specialist, GeoOceans, monitoring sites at Point Lowly then perform some calculations to quantify the cuttlefish density.

To take the challenge, read about the Giant Australian Cuttlefish, follow the challenge instructions, and watch the video to complete them.

To go in the prize draw:

  1. Register and submit your answers. The winner will be drawn from those who’ve entered with an accurate answer i.e. within 20% of the correct result
  2. To get a preview of the prize, try this Underwater ROV online simulator.

Show us your cuttlefish counts from your ROV driving efforts. Share on social media via #deeperblue2020 and #scienceweek.

Entry via the ROV Cuttlefish Challenge will close at 5pm on Sunday 23 August. T&Cs apply.
