Chasing Subsea ROVs Help Fish Farmers with Challenging Marine Environments

The motto of Chasing Innovation Tech Company is “Explore the unexplored,” and that is exactly what its world-leading range of underwater equipment has been developed to achieve.

Chasing was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Shenzhen, China. In the UK, Chasing’s distributor is AlphaGeo.

Chasing’s range of products, now in its seventh generation, is widely used in underwater observation and photography, scientific research, and exploration—and, of course, aquaculture.

In aquaculture, fish farm owners need to be able to conduct underwater inspections of damaged or fouled nets, water quality, and the health and growth of their stock. These procedures face a number of operational challenges, as manual inspection is a costly and potentially risky exercise.

Chasing offers a range of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) depending on the specifications required.

The Chasing M2 Pro and Pro Max have eight thrusters, allowing movement in any direction, and can carry out high-definition recording with a 4K lens.

They have a removable 300Wh standard battery for longer endurance, which can be upgraded to a 700Wh, and have the capacity for mounting multiple accessories.

The Chasing M2 Pro and Pro Max also have high-powered motors with anti-flow capability, a built-in docking station (M2 Pro Max), and external floodlights for greater image clarity.

Optional accessories include a grabber arm, E-reel, camera, DLS, and equipment for water sampling and monitoring.
