Experience marine life first-hand
Marine researchers have developed Deakin’s purpose‑built
research vessel, Yolla, which houses one of the most
advanced sonar systems in the world – and have created
a detailed continuous map of Victoria’s sea floor habitats.
This data is playing a key role in supporting fishery
and conservation management of the state’s marine
environments. Deakin environment students get to
participate in a range of practical activities, such as identifying
marine plants and animals using the images generated by
remotely controlled vehicles on the sea floor.
